Personal injury settlement from insurance company

Legal Q&ACategory: Personal InjuryPersonal injury settlement from insurance company
Reader asked 5 years ago

My question is regarding whether or not the settlement that was told is appropriate for the injury I suffered.

About a year ago or so, I suffered an injury which caused my back to go bad. I had to go through a few procedures in order for my back to stop hurting. I got a call from the insurance company and told me that I would be receiving about 20,000 dollars due to my injury. Is this reasonable for the injury I suffered or do I have a right to receive more?

Welcome to!
I know that you’re right to not get into too much detail (personal info) on a public forum but, there is no way anyone could answer this question without having medical knowledge and knowledge of your personal situation, including income and needs.
While I appreciate your visiting our forum, and want you to feel welcome here, this is absolutely a question that has to go to a personal injury attorney¬†who is knowledgeable and experienced in the type of injury you’ve suffered (e.g., auto accident, dog bite, slip and fall, medical malpractice).
Please click’s Find-a-Lawyer directory to locate a personal injury attorney near you who can¬†review what happened, determine how badly you were injured, and apply that information to the terms of the proposed settlement.
All the best to you,
