It seems like they are shortchanging you and you should contact an attorney or at least your own insurance company, who should get attorneys to fight for you.
At the very least, they have to pay for the damage to your car since they are at fault and for the pain and suffering and if you lost any work time for the time you weren't able to walk
I would say you are owed at least 2500, which is the cost to repair the car and around 2k plus any work lost due to your injuries.
Thank you for your input into our problem. I was supposed to have one month of free advice so I don't know how to handle this.
All we want is to pay for the repair of the car. We are both retired so don't work. However it would seem to me that all the pain and suffering I have had for 2 months would need some more compensation than what they offered as $2,500. (Their second offer)
Let me know what you think about this. Thank you very muchy.

As far as your accident, I would get a consultation with an attorney in your area. He may take the case on a contingency basis, meaning he gets paid only if you do (call your local bar to get some referrals). Or if you have full coverage, call your insurance company and you may get compensated that way.
