Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello, I am an attorney and am happy to assist.
Yes, that does sound like a good settlement amount. If you feel that your injuries are so serious that you will have permanent physical limitations, that is the only way that you can recover in court, so this settlement may be a great gift. Going to litigation is very hard to prove permanent serious physical injuries.
But, if you feel that your situation is well documented enough and you have doctors who back up that you will never get better, and that this impairs your life abilities, then you could go ahead and proceed and you may be able to get more.
You also have the option of asking for arbitration and seeing if you could negotiate a higher amount with them.
Let me know if you have questions about this.
