How much should I settle this injury case for?

by Michelle
(Savannah, Ga.)

I was involved in a car accident in July.

I have accumulated over 16,000 in medical bills. I have returned back to work but I still suffer with migraines which I never had headaches before, I also have severe neck pain that interferes with my sleep and work, often I am crying because of the pain.

I have not been able to have sex with my husband since the accident because of the pain.

I have an appointment with a neurologist soon, but I was wondering what happens if his insurance amounts run out? What claims calculator is used to determine the amount to offer and potentially settle?


Hello Michelle,

You have substantial medical expenses. $16K is quite a bit. You really need to talk to an attorney. It's possible that your husband (not you) may have a separate claim for loss of consortium, please see:

This is a more complex claim to make and one that insurance companies do not like to honor. That's why you need to talk to a lawyer. To find a local attorney, please see:

If however, if you want to try to settle yourself and save on attorneys fees, you really need to study our page. Please see:

We hope this helps,
