When he stops bellowing ask him why he should get a portion of the $10,000 you've already been offered? The Beagle will slink around the office, spittle dripping from his jaws, clawing the rug and/or humping your leg because there's no answer to that question.
Should that Beagle continue to give you a hard time say, "Tell you what, your commission is usually 1/3 of the recovery. In this instance I'll give you 50% of the recovery! In other words, I'll split every dollar you get - - above and beyond that $10,000 I've been offered - - fifty-fifty !"
If the Beagle still balks (and you're absolutely positive the accident is not a question of liability but rather "how much" it's worth)you can find one that will. Even if they're not a self-proclaimed alleged "hot shot" - - or maybe a youngster just beginning their practice - - it's okay. If it's only a question of "how much" you'll find one. And, if they all turn you down, you can be 99.9% assured that the money offered is just about the limit of what your claim is worth.
So, friends of Car Junky (after you've read my book and applied The BASE Formula) try the above on for size - - what can you lose? Just make sure you don't let that statute run.
