When an insurance company starts putting up extra hurdles and hoops to jump through, that's when I figure it's time to file suit. In your case, it's time.
No, it isn't true that they HAVE TO have your case reviewed by a doctor, it' just what they've chosen to do in your case. The adjuster and his supervisors have sufficient experience and authority to offer a settlement if that's how they wished to proceed. They've decided to pursue a different path. You should too. Hire an attorney so that your case can be filed and handled properly.

Many good personal injury attorneys handle big cases and small ones as well. Many of us are more interested in the quality of the case and the person than just how big it is.
NOTE: IF YOU'RE NOT SURE IF YOU HAVE A "BIG" ENOUGH CASE, THAT SHOULDN'T STOP YOU FROM CALLING. FREE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE ON ALL CASES.

The value of your personal injury case is related to the nature, extent and duration of your injuries, and also the chances that you may not be able to prove negligence in court. You do not get extra money because somebody left the scene.
