Personal Injury Pain and Suffering
Torn Rotator Cuff with Surgery
I was in an automobile accident and suffered a torn rotator cuff as a result. I ultimately had to have surgery to repair the tear. My advice, don't have surgery if you don't absolutely have too. It's very painful and after 4 months I still do not have total mobility.
I also have emotional and mental distress from the accident. I was in a no fault accident about 10 years ago which resulted in the death of the other driver and I retired on disability due to the accident. I now have fibromyalgia as a result and the recent accident has made me feel even worse.
This accident recreated memories I have been fighting to get rid of and I have nightmares and sleep issues. I have anxieties while driving and as a passenger. I have had surgery for my shoulder, continue to see a psychologist and still struggling with physical therapy.
Even though I am not close to settling with the insurance company, I have been looking at settlement calculators. Most have a selection for lost wages, even though I do not work, what do I put in this selection. Also hearing what I am going through, what would be a fair offer to ask as a settlement.
