How much should I expect as a fair settlement for pain and suffering in a car accident?
I was involved in a car accident this year that was not my fault. I was stopped at a red light and the car behind me did not stop. My husband was a passenger in my car. We both went to the hospital, myself for neck pain and my husband for back pain. We were both given x-rays and pain medication. I was told I had a slight case of whiplash. The insurance company is just now offering to settle with us on our bills. My husbands bills total $2,828.53 and mine total 2,868.09. They are offering my husband only $3,300 and myself $3,200. What about our pain and suffering? Should we speak with a personal injury attorney? We're in Walton, GA.
