how much should i settle my auto injury claim for?

by admin on May 19, 2010

i had an acccident about a year and half ago and i was a passenger. i have no health insurance and have been footing all medical bills thus far. i am writing a deman letter right now but am wondering how much should be my compensation request.
here’s a brief summary. the other driver is at complete fault. i have all soap notes from doctors,bills and reports. we were hit head on while on our way to my root canal surgery, i was having my permanent put in. i had to go in 2 weeks later wearing a cervical collar. i have choronditis, back sprains and horrible knee contusions still left on my foot. my doctor has recommended physical therapy for up to 3 months but i can’t afford to go anymore thus why i am trying to settle.
total medical bills is about 12,000 not including other misc like pills.
i just don’t want to ask too high or be taken for a fool,so please help. thanks.
also yes, they have never mad an offer at all in a year and a half. i basically want this to be over since two years will be november.
again, should i start at 3x medical expenses or what number?
should i expect to be reimbursed for all the money i have put out thus far. i have no health insurance, so it has been a huge burden.
