How much is my injury worth?
So far, I’m told by an orthopedic specialist that I have a compression fracture in my lower spine. The cause was an auto accident. I was a trucker with Schneider National. I drove as a team with another driver. I was asleep in the bunk, as my partner was driving, when a pickup truck went left of center and hit us nearly head on. We were both traveling at 65 MPH. We managed to escape before our semi burned to the ground in a matter of minutes. Two of the four occupants in the pickup truck were killed. We lost all of our personal property in the semi, of which $3,000 worth was mine. The other party only carried a $20,000 auto insurance policy, both property and bodily injury. Schneider National is taking most of it with a $150,000 claim. I currently have a worker’s comp. attorney, but I don’t have any idea what sort of settlement will be reached at this point. My back pain has been consistent for the past 6 months and seems to be worsening.
I am also unable to return to driving or perform any physical labor. The accident happened in Kansas and I live in Ohio.
Also, the insurance company of the other party is only offering $500 for my property.
And… If the doctors at the occupational health facility that I was first sent to by Schneider had properly diagnosed my condition, it could have been repaired, according to my orthopedic specialist.
