My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: NC
I'm a disabled vet who reaggravated a back injury after an accident on the highway. 100% not my fault and it's not in dispute. I was released from care from my doctor and my lawyer just sent in my demand letter. My medicals bills totaled 60k and the demand is for 250k. My question is what if, the person at fault has only 60k worth of coverage? My uninsured coverage in 50k. The minimum is 30k in the state of NC. I've found PI calculators that say my settlement is worth 180+. How much should i "expect" to settle for given the information or what ballpark figure would be realistically feasible given the facts.
50k-full coverage uninsured motorist(self)
30k-at fault policy limit(minimum)*
*I don't know how much the at faults party's policy limit is but, it has to be at least 30k.
My lawyer said, she would reduce her fee and try to work with the medical bill debtors to reduce theirs as well. If, I think i should take home at least 50k given my damages and how these settlements payout of time would it be too far fetched? 50k after my lawyers 1/3
