Subject: How are Settlements Determined?
Two of my children were injured in an accident while driving my car. My 16 year old sprained her ankle and my 15 year old broke one of her front teeth. After speaking to the adjuster, she stated that after all dental and medical charges are submitted and finalized, my 15 year old would be receiving a settlement because the injury is a permanent one. I would like to know what criteria is used to determine what a settlement should be and how do I go about ensuring that my child will have the funds to cover any other needed dental work.
