I was in a car accident in September '05. I hired a lawyer three weeks later only because I was getting no cooperation from my own insurance company. I began chiropractic care in mid October and completed all my medical care in mid January. I notified the legal assistant that medical care was complete and they told me they would begin working on the demand letter. Needless to say, I was given the runaround for several weeks - months in fact - but finally was told that the demand letter was sent to AmFam Insurance June 1.
So here we are July 3rd. I was told last week that AmFam Ins. would be making an offer next week (July 10). If I should accept the offer, how long before I actually receive the settlement check? I don't want to seem money hungry, but I am at a point now where I will accept anything just to be done with this matter.
I'm desperate because I need a vehicle ASAP. I already missed two semesters of school because of this accident and I don't want to miss the coming fall semester because I still don't have a car (which was totaled in the accident).
Any info would be much appreciated (and helpful considering my legal team can't give me much to go on.)
