I also would like help with how much money to ask for in my auto accident case?
Thank you jmayer5025 for your reply. I already have an attorney and after a year of the insurance company denying my claims, this attorney got a reconstructionist company to look at my case, because in Colorado you have to prove the liablitiy of the other person, especially when the cops don't give out a ticket. This company wrote a complimentary letter stating 100% of the liablitiy was this girl's. So now the insurance compnay wants us to put together a settlement amount to present them with & not file the lawsuit right now. We have a great chance to settle very soon, but I know I need to have money for a future surgery and ongoing therapy and medications probably for the rest of my life. My spine doc said for me to use therapy and anything else to help me cope with pain until I can't ake anymore & then surgery. This is because I am only 36 & in good shape, the advise me to try & cope as long as possible as there are new alternatives delveloping. I don't want to be fused.

That will give you what it cost per year for medical. then take that number and times it 5 or more (# of years you want to make sure you have $$$ for medical coverage). After you get that # add the cost... More

That is your attorney's job. Your attorney will ask for a huge amount knowing he/she can't get it and negotiate from there. Don't believe for a second that the first demand for settlement is what you will get.
