CALIFORNIA: Bodily injury insurance claim, how does this whole thing work???
I was in an auto accident about 4 months ago, the other vehicle(commercial truck) rear ended a car in back of me, going at about 40-50MPH, that vehicle then rammed into the car in front of them & that vehicle rammed into my car, thus creating a sort of domino effect (me & the other 2 cars that were hit were completely stopped at the time of impact). Luckily I did not hit any one (the commercial truck was found to be 100% at fault), however I was about 7 months pregnant at the time of the accident, I was rushed immediately to the hospital by the ambulance & ended up having to stay there for almost 2 days the impact sent me into pre-term labor! I was released from the hospital still pregnant, however I had a lot of pain in my back, a bruised rib & my legs hurt a lot after the accident (lifting them, exercising). Luckily I was able to go full term with my pregnancy. I’ve had my child since then & I now have upper back pain a lot & neck pain & my labor was a lot WORSE then my First Born. What are my options I have an attorney BUT he doesn’t seem to eager if you know what I mean, he is not telling me very much. I am also kind of traumatized because I have panic attacks when ever a vehicle gets too close behind me. I may be damaged for life physically & mentally because of this accident I want to be fairly compensated what options do I have? I have never been in an accident where I had a bodily injury claim, the last thing I want is to settle for too little.
