This is a circumstance where you almost certainly will be better served if you hire an attorney. An attorney will handle your matter on a contingency basis and your recovery will most likely be significantly higher with an attorney than without. Typically in these types of situations an insurance company is going to try to get you to resolve your matter quickly but for a settlement amount that is significantly less than the case is actually worth. Happy to discuss with you, but if you don't discuss with me you should certainly reach out to someone else.

Thanks,
Jon
