    Default Wife and Kids Injured

    My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: Washington.

    My wife and kids were stopped at a light to make a left hand turned and was smashed head on and into another car behind them. It was 100% the other guys fault as he had a medical condition that caused him to hit us. The police also said in the accident report it was the other guys fault and insurance company claimed responsibility. Two of my kids went by ambulance to the ER. My wife has had several therapy appointments with doctors and chiropractors for a total of $10,000, one of our kids was bleeding from the mouth and has had $6,000 in medical related and our youngest daughter who has autism which compunded the problem has also had $6,000 in medical. We are close to getting a call to settle. What would be a good starting point figure? Do we combine this into one settlement? Do each get there own settlement? Since the kids are minors is there a structured settlement that needs to happen?

    Thank you,

    Mike

    You should be directing these questions to your attorney. You do have one, don't you?

    No. Should we get one?

    Absolutely! Like yesterday!

    There are several factors to consider; long term effects of the injuries, future wage loss, etc. You should never speak to anyone, especially the other insurance companies lawyers - that's for your lawyer to handle. The other party is simply looking out for themselves, not you or your family.
