My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: California
I was walking across the street and a car making a right turn failed to yield and ended up hitting me. Luckily, I am ok and nothing was broken. I hired a lawyer but wanted a second opinion on what this wonderful community thinks of it. My medical expenses were ~$10,000. My lawyer contact their insurance company and found out that the man is only covered up to $15,000. Unfortunately, our original plan was to request for $30,000. Since the person at fault's coverage is only $15,000, my lawyer is advising me to forget the 30 and only take the 15. He believes if I sue, I won't win and it'll be a waste of money. Thoughts?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
