Can you guys give me a brief summary on what is being mentioned here?

The way i interpret it is as follow:
I find it ridiculous that this solicitor is not able to help me stake a claim of 3000+ in general damages as calculated/mentioned by them earlier in another letter and now AIA denied liability, thus they are asking me for 7500?

My family and I feel distressed, as this is material in relative to my family’s income. Is there a provision in common law for us to sue for the distress caused?
I have things to add the law firm is named Riaz Advocates and Solicitors. The "M/S Riaz" above refers to them?

raichasays, may I ask if your answer still stands?
anyone can quote the exact part that says AHA is paying 7500? I can’t decipher this law language.

    American Home Assurance Company is offering to pay to the injured persons $7500 in full settlement of all claims from the August 2008 accident. If the injured persons accept that, it is done, over, there is no more lawsuit.

    If the injured persons think that is not enough, they can refuse to accept it and try to get more in court. As for "distress", I’m not sure what the law would be in your part of the world, but your solicitor should be able to answer that question for you.
