We were driving home from some friends place at 11:34 p.m. , on a country road, and at any uncontrolled intersection a 17 year old male failed to yield to the person to the right, who was myself. I hit the vehicle and both were written off. A young male was killled. It was deemed a no fault accident but now my daughter who was with us refuses to drive, my husband is having a hard time getting his work done and I can not open bottles, use a can opener very well, and have lost all of my patience. I was always told that if you were in an accident and had broken bones you should get some compensation. The other insurance company had called at one point and asked if I wanted to settle but would not elaborate on what they were talking about. What should have actually happened?

Personal injury lawyers often work on contingency. They look for high claim numbers that they can get a high percentage of. But, they are still lawyers and this site is a Law Society site. If you have a limitation period, you need to know that right away.
You would sue the insurance company and the other driver. You need to do both.
Although I hope I have assisted, there is no possibility that an online lawyer can resolve this. You must see a live lawyer and you must do it now if you are facing a limitation period.
The law society will give you a few names and you can see one or all for free. But, this is a step you must take.
