I already contacted a lawyer. It was one of the first things I did today. One thing I know for sure is that insurance companies can not be trusted.
My father was a passenger in a car accident 10 years ago, his lawyer took care of everything and really got everything you could imagine out of the insurance company, from theraputic massage and chiropractor treatment to a pretty fat settlement. I'm definitely going to use the same guy. They are coming over to my apartment Wednesday night to talk to me more about my case.
Not that I'm trying to make money off of this, but I want to make sure that my bases are covered in case of a long-term injury popping up in the future. I'm planning on going to the doctor tommorow to have my back and neck checked out more thoroughly since they were not bothering me in the emergency room last night, but today I was in quite a bit of pain. I felt like I got hit by a truck!
Oh wait, I did get hit by a truck :)
Sorry, I'm a little goofy from painkillers.
Thank you for your concern. It means a lot to me. I'm going to be very careful to make sure that everything is properly documented and only deal with the insurance company through the lawyer. I'm not even going to send in the claim documentation without talking to them about it first.
I feel bad for the woman who hit me. She was even more upset than I was! She seems to be a really good person who just made an honest mistake in judgement.
Last night I had to tell the police officer in the hospital to tell her to go home, becase she was insisting on waiting with me. She called me to check up on me today and sent me a beautiful fruit basket from Edible Arrangements along with a Get Well card. I want to call her and thank her for her concern to make her feel better but I'm not even going to do that untill I talk to the lawyer. I hate that you have to be that way about these things.
For now I'm stuck in the house and bored crazy already. You guys are probably going to see even more of me now!
