    No matter what always say you are in pain. No matter what the tests say, no matter what the docs say, you are in pain. Don't get far fetched with it. Find a location on your back or neck and stick to it. Also headaches never hurt the cause either. Dont go overboard with mental anguish or anything like that. Just physical pain.

    i agree with this. There is no way they can find out your not in pain. I'm doing this with a shoulder injury i got from playing rugby. Hope you don't stay in pain though.

    All medical bills and expenses for your car should be taken care of... then generally 3 x the medical expense for pain and suffering is standard... note I said standard...

    Open up your phone book... call a few personal injury lawyers in your area. I'm sure you'll have several interested attornies to choose from.

    Dont go too high over your PIP then that money will come out of your settlement. Dont get those expensive tests and stuff like that. Medical bills will dog your award.

    It takes an average of 3 - 5 years to settle a case, what they offer you initially on top of fixing your car and medical bills is chump change.

    Do what you got to do, but dont think going to 20 doctors and getting state of the art tests is to your benefit because its not. Keep it simple. Doctors visits and physical therapy. Never miss appointments and never get better.

    My area of interest is criminal law, but I'll give my 2 cents.

    It depends on where you live and what your states laws are. Here is how it works in the state I'm studying law...

    In a personal injury case, you (being the victom and prosecuting lawyers) have two years before you have to formerly press charges. After two years, the matter is considered old and over (for lack of better terms).

    Neither side particularly wants to take matters like this to court becasue its time consuming and costly. Not to mention, both sides fear the chance of losing the case and being held accountable for costs and fees.

    So here is what would happen if you were in the state I'm in. Your lawyers would contact their lawyers in hopes of coming to a mutual settlement. Their lawyers and insurance company will try and give you a million reasons why they are not accoutable. They know that you have two years before you have to take them to court, so they will push you around and avoid you as much as possible hoping that you and your lawyers will just drop the case sometime between then. When the two years come around and they know that they are close to getting summoned to court, thats when they will start talking about a settlement.

    Hope that was understandable.


    Like I said.... contact a lawyer, I'm sure you'll find somebody who will love to have this case and they will fill you in on all your states laws.
