Auto Accident Personal Injury Claim…

Submitted By: Karen (Maine)

I’m wondering what’s a fair settlement offer for an accident where the other driver was found 100 percent at fault. My injuries were a bruised chest from the air bag and two broken ribs from the seat belt. I also got pneumonia as a result of the chest injury. Total weeks down was 10. Thanks for any info you can give.

Dear Karen,


Your injuries must have been terribly painful. We would very much like to answer your questions. To do so properly we are going to need the amount of your medical bills as well as the amount of your lost wages.

If there are any other expenses you incurred as a result of the collision, please let us know as well. Once we have all the information we will be in a better position to suggest a settlement amount.

The above is general information. Laws change frequently, and across jurisdictions. You should get a personalized case evaluation from a licensed attorney. Find a local attorney to give you a free case review here , or call (888) 647-2490.
