My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: Maryland.
Hello. Was a passenger in an auto accident and sustained minor whiplash and headaches. Other driver was at fault and had good insurance, they are compensating me pain and suffering (drivers company for lost wages and expenses). Diagnosed at urgent care center of whiplash and Suboccipital Headaches. Followed up at a university hospital with 8 weeks physical therapy and a consultation with a neurologist is scheduled that I was referred to by my pcp, a well respected physician. No X-rays or MRIs. Missed 2 days of work. Ordered not to work out or do sports for 4 weeks. Had to hire a dog walker to walk my dog because of injury for a month ($400 total for 20 walks)
Pain/suffering/inconvenience settlement offered was a little under $3000. I felt this was low and sent a well worded counter offer of $15,000. What is a reasonable settlement in your opinion? Thank you
