I was in an auto accident around two months ago. It was determined that it was the other persons fault. I've been going to the doctor for a hurt finger and and various other injuries. I'm did not plan on using a lawyer in this matter, but when it comes time to settle, what is typically a reasonable offer? Is it a percentage of the total medical bills? Will the insurance company offer a low sum? Am I able to fight for a higher wage? Right now, they have been paying my medical expenses, but I am close to being back to normal.
To keep an answer to this common issue short, there is no "calculation" per se (too many factors involved), and you should immediately obtain an attorney or you're going to get "the short end of the stick."
