I have a question regarding an auto accident personal injury

I have a question regarding an auto accident personal injury settlement. The insurance company sent a settlement offer (very low) I then called and told them what I thought was fair and they raised their offer $1800. The problem is I do not think that is fair. I've done research online and used the 1.5-5 multiplier and their final offer is lower than what it would be if I used a 1 multiplier. Their client rear-ended me and I hurt my knee. I had a CT Scan and Xray which did not show a break or tear. However my normal activities have been affected by this injury. I used to walk three miles everyday, I can barely walk one. I used to wear heels everyday all day and now can barely make it through half a day without putting on my slippers. My knee gives me problems in the cold and with activity still today. My medical bills total $4,090.00 and lost wages total $960.00. I was in treatment for nearly 6weeks. It has been 9 months since the accident which occurred on October 21, 2015. The insurance first offer was $7300 and then after I called to decline it they raised it to $9,000. I am just wanting to know if this is a fair offer. I feel my pain and suffering will increase as I get older. I've been diagnosed with anxiety and I have had to raise my dosage of insomnia meds because of what my lifestyle has been limited to since my knee injury.

I rented to a woman my 4bed 2 bath house who sets up a home

I rented to a woman my 4bed 2 bath house who sets up a home environment for people with mental disabilities. The neighbor called us screaming,you need to get rid of those people. I asked her to call me back, when she calmed down and could tell me what the problem was. Instead she called licensing, stating they were living in filth,she has called the police three times now reporting a disturbance, people were asleep,now she has called code enforcement,stating there are 18 people living there and they sent a request to enter the residence. I called them and I was told that in San Diego ca a city ordinance was passed, that no more then 5 adults could live in a residence, regardless of its size. I don't want to allow them in, the neighbor is determined to use gov officials to discriminate against these people
