Writing a Demand Letter for Back Pain
(aliso viejo, ca, us)
I was in a rear ended in a car accident in September 2010. As a result of the hard hit, my Lexus SUV got pushed forward on the freeway.
The driver behind me didn't pay attention to the traffic slowing down. I have the police report that states the other driver was 100% at fault.
As a result of this accident, I have a lot of sharp pain in my back and buttocks. I also have a headache. I was on my way to work and I missed going to work that day because of pain and headache. I visited a chiropractician a few days later and went under some x-ray and ultrsound and treatment for pain for about 2 months ( 12 sessions).
My total medical bill came up to be $ 2534.00 which was paid by my insurance (I have medical coverage in my car insurance).
This procces was pretty time consuming and inconvinient for me due the type of job that i have (I teach ultrasound in private college).
I need to know what do I write in my demand letter and how much compensation should I ask for my pain and suffering.
I appreciate your advise.
