Glad to hear you finally got some money! It sucks that attorneys cost so much but sometimes its better to spend the money on one or be left out to dry by the "at fault" ins co cause you know they will have attorneys involved.
My wife also finally settled her case she ended up with her car repaired all medical paid and about $10k in the bank
I'd still give it all back before I'd sit through 1 more minute of my wife laying in a hospital bed while 3 different docs try to find my unborn sons heartbeat tho that's for sure!!
