First of all, the accident was not my fault whatsoever. The 2nd driver admitted her guilt to the police officer.

I've been having horrible upper back pain since March (when the accident happened).
I hit my face on the steering wheel when my seat belt didn't lock. I was wearing my seatbelt.
I had an immediate heachache on the upper right part of my face. I still have these headaches; I've had them for so long that I've kinda just learned to deal with it.

There wasn't much damage to the car. But underneath the bumper it clearly had accordioned in. There was a bend above the left back tire, and the back bumper had fallen off a bit.

My passenger and I were sent to therapy but the insurance doesn't want to pay because they believe that there is no way someone can get injured in an accident like that.

Our lawyer is fighting them by saying that I was harmed, but she informed me that she can't think of any good reason to explain to the insurance company WHY I could get hurt.

Do you have any ideas?
Do you believe it's possible to get hurt in a situation like this?


Thank you in advance.

Huh? Where did you find this lawyer??????

A car hit you at high speed and she can't figure out how to fight for your ongoing medical bills? Tell her to get it together or you will find a real lawyer.

The first thing you need to do is see your doctor to get verification of your injuries. The second thing is to contact your insurance company to let them know the other insurance company doesn't want to pay. They have ways to get the money from them. The next thing you should do is fire your incompetent lawyer and find a good one. People get hurt daily from being rear ended at speeds much, much slower than 55 mph.

Something doesn't add up here. If the car that hit you was really going 55, it would have been a much more severe accident! Your car would be much more damaged and you would have worse injuries - and most of all, your insurance company and your lawyer wouldn't be wondering how you got injured!

Have you had any x-rays or MRI to see if you've suffered obvious physical injury?

Anyway, even if the other car was going much more slowly, it's still common to get whiplash injuries in this kind of crash. I'm kind of surprised your lawyer isn't on top of that - maybe you need another one.
