Head and knee personal injury from a motorcycle/car accident
(Sioux City, IA)
My insurance company hasn't done anything yet to compensate me and haven't even offered a personal injury settlement yet.
My accident injuries haven't gotten any better in 6 months and I haven't been to work since the accident.
I was riding around town on my motorcycle with my friends and we pulled on to a 4 lane road. We all got in the stagger formation with my friend in front and me behind him and to the left.
We were in the right lane and this lady in her car came by us really fast in the left lane. Then she got in our lane in front of us then back into the left lane and then she slowed down an made a sudden right turn across our lane into a BAR parking lot!
She hit my buddy that was in front of me in the side and I didn't have enough time to swerve. My breaks locked up and the bike came over top and threw me off. my head and knee hit the ground hard and i was knocked out.
The bike ended up landing on my head and I had a seizure when I hit the ground. I had to have staples on both sides of my head and stay in ICU overnight. Since then I have had knee surgery to fix my knee (I still have pain and it still clicks), and have seen a neurologist for my constant headaches, dizziness, and problems sleeping.
The only thing my insurance company has done is pay me for my totaled motorcycle for $6,000 and that's what i have been living off of for the past 6 months, hope they will do something soon so i can get this behind me. Anyone know what my settlement can be worth?
