Insurance Question from Grimes, IA
Asked on 04/08/2013
How much to counter offer for insurance settlement? need advice I was involved in a motorcycle accident a year ago, a car turned in front of me and crashed. i received a small broken bone in my foot that didn't require a cast, also i hit my head during the wreck and suffered a concussion resulting in ongoing headaches over the past year, i am on medication to stop the headaches and have been told by the doctor that this might be a life long medication. My bills came out to about 6000 in medical bills. they offered to pay all the medical as well as an addition $6500 in pain and damages. should i counter offer for 18000 or more which is 3x specials. thanks.

You need to contact an attorney. This isn’t an insurance question.
