Legal Question in Personal Injury in California

I was rear-ened in a car accident and went to see a chiropractor for about a month after the accident. The Dr. bills total $1,925 and I was offered $1,000 for my pain and suffering; making the total settlement offer $2,925. My question is if that is a fair offer? Thank you.

It's typical of what you can expect, yes. Your alternative is to go to small claims, where you might not do much better.

More facts are needed. Did you miss work? Do you still have pain, etc. Insurance companies ALWAYS try to nickel and dime and pay as little as possible. Call an attorney to help you. We can almost always get your medical bills reduced.
