To give a meaningful answer, I would need more details as to the nature of the collision and the resulting injuries. It certainly seems that you were in a serious accident with serious injuries. My best advice is to schedule a free consultation with a personal injury attorney licensed in Florida in order to obtain a meaningful evaluation of your case. Please be aware that there is a 4-year time limit for filing suit on a motor vehicle collision in Florida.

Insurance companies get ton of medical reports claiming back and neck injury saying they need surgery. There is a big difference in credibility when the surgery actually is done Not just a lot of hot air. Your case can be viewed as essentially worthless or worth the $100,000 policy limits.

Are you a credible person? Are yor doctors and lawyer pillars in the community? How will a jury evaluate your complaints? No one can evaluate your case based on your post. Have you been examined by the insurance company doctors? THey may well say as they often do that your complaints are exaggerated and no surgery is needed. I was a defense atorney before becoming a plaintiffs lawyer. Its tough to seperate the honest injured from the fakers and I've had some clients that I believed honest turned out total to be total frauds.

No matter how many times you post this question, the answer will be the same. It is impossible to answer without seeing the medical records. Not having surgery means you are left with whatever your condition is and how it affects your life. Hire an attorney or at least consult with one to discuss the matter in detail.
