Personal Injury Settlements - HEAD TRAUMA from a Motor Vehicle Accident (MVA)

My insurance company denied my personal injury settlement claim and awarded me 15% for whiplash and back injury.

I was rear ended 20 years ago. Since then I have been suffering from constant head pains, dizziness and insomnia. The insurance company claimed that my head pains, etc, were a result of the neck strain.

Recently, the pains got so severe that I had to see a neurologist. I told him that I would like to have a MRI/SPECT SCAN done. He sent me to a nearby hospital where I had it done. Two weeks later, the result came in and it showed that there are small, asymmetrical perfusion defects along the inferior aspect of the frontal lobes bilaterally, which was suggestive of prior trauma.

So now I have submitted a new and revised auto insurance claim.

Can you reopen a personal injury settlements insurance claim?
by: Steve

I'm not sure but I thought once you accepted the initial personal injury settlement amount, you couldn't file another insurance claim for the same auto accident.

Were you able to successfully reopen this claim or have you just started looking into it? I would appreciate some feedback because I wasn't happy with my final insurance claim and maybe I can reopen it as well then.

It's amazing that you're still experiencing pain after 20 years. Hopefully this time you will get a higher settlement amount. Best of luck.
