Things Can Work Out After An Accident
About two and a half years ago my life was completely changed forever after my husband and I got into a car accident. My husband and I were driving on the highway when a large truck in front of us lost control. One of its tires blew out, and the truck started weaving back and forth on the road. Before we knew it, we were hit by the backside of the trailer, and our car was thrown into a ditch. My husband was knocked unconscious, and our car was flipped upside down.
All I could remember was that I was screaming for my husband, and he was unconscious. I looked over and I passed out within a few seconds. The next thing that I knew, I was in an ambulance, and I was being taken to the hospital. I kept asking for my husband, because I was so worried about him. We got to the hospital and my husband was conscious again, but he was in a neck brace and so was I. I had a broken fingers and toes, and my husband had a concussion along with a broken nose. Apart from that, we both suffered serious trauma to our necks. I was in the hospital for two weeks, and my husband was in the hospital for a month and a half. It was a horrible ordeal. Not only did we both lose a lot of money from not working, but we also had a lot of pain and suffering.
The insurance company of the truck only could pay so much money, but since our problems were so severe, we were going to need continuous care for at least a year. The insurance company did not want to pay all of the money that we were going to need to cover our pain and suffering and our bills. My mother got us in contact with a personal injury attorney, and that was one of the best things that she could have done. My mom said that she heard about the accident lawyer from an ad on the radio, so she called them up.
Our injury lawyer was the most compassionate person that I have ever met. I would have never thought that a person like her could be an accident lawyer, because she was truly interested in our welfare. My husband and I were not out for a lot of money, we just wanted to get compensated for our pain and suffering. We also wanted compensation for the time that we were out of work. Our injury lawyer stayed by us, and she fought for everything that we deserved. We had to go to court only once, and we were awarded the exact amount that our personal injury lawyer had asked for.
My husband and I have recovered from the accident, but we still have the occasional pain in our backs and necks. We are still receiving continuous care from a chiropractor. We are so thankful for our lawyer, because she really did help us out when we needed it. We were able to get the money back to pay for the bills that we had, so all of our medical bills were completely covered. My husband and I now have a new car, and we are expecting our first baby.
