If you ask for 200,000. in a demand letter for settlement in auto accident that left you with whiplash, bulging disk in you neck at C4 and C5, frequent head aches, and medial bills of 18000, off work for 6 weeks, PT 4 different times, and a multitude of pain meds to control the pain. Is this amount going to make the defense attorney come back with a lower counter offer or would this be considered reasonable?
By the way the defense attorney ask for a reasonable demand becasue they are ready to settle? This case has been ongoing for 3 years. The demand was just sent today so I haven’t heard anything back yet.
This accident was with a 18 wheeler, so I’m sure their policy limits are higher than personal auto insurance limits.
