my wife was in a car accident back in March of this year. She was in a 2001 Toyota Sequoia when a car failed to yield and turned left in front of her causing the accident. The air bags did deploy and the car was totaled.
She went to emergency room because here neck, shoulder and back were sore just to make sure she was ok. We contacted an attorney and they had her go to several chiropractor sessions.
The car was in decent condition before the accident, priced at around $7,000
Their insurance company gave us around $6000. They gave us $500 for car rental in the interim.
The attorney got back to us last week and said we were awarded $4500 in medical compensation. What do I need to do at this point? How do verify amount is correct?
We had to purchase a car lower than what we had, although newer and more expensive, so now we have a car payment that we didn't have before.
