It depends on how long it takes to recover physically. Settlement discussions are premature until released from care. Once released, your attorney can try to settle by submitting your medical bills, lost wages, etc. In serious accidents, a lawsuit is usually required. Only after full discovery can a meaningful discussion be had about settlement. I am licensed in SC and NC with over 25 years experience. I would suggest you consult with a local attorney for more specific guidance on your case.
