RE: SCREWED by the ins. co.

I would bypass the other insurance company's estimator and communicate
directly with the insurance company.  Assuming that you feel you have
not been injured or would have any problems in the future, I would
inform them anyway that you have been seeing a doctor and have been
documenting your injuries and plan to retain a lawyer in the near
future.  Tell them you are keeping all information confidential if they
want details.  Then tell them that you are willing to settle for "X"
number of dollars if they would agree to fairly settle on your vehicle
and that you would sign a release.
Mind you that all disclaimers apply, but sometimes you need to push them
to get them to do the right thing.
