When I was rear-ended in 2014, I thought that it would be a few trips to the chiropractor and I would be fine. Here I sit, two and a half years later, and I am wondering how this got so expensive. I have run up well over $200 thousand dollars in bills and after speaking with my lawyer today, I recieved their final bill!
We often hear about personal injury lawsuits that pay out millions of dollars. Really, most people are doing well to get their bills paid after the fact. I haven’t worked in 15 months! If it weren’t for the kindness of family and friends, I wouldn’t even be able to male it through the process of suing someone.
Make no mistake, I am not in this for the money. I was willing to settle for nine thousand dollars in 2015. Glad I didn’t. I just want to be able to live my life and take care of my daughter. Hopefully, after all of this, I will be able to.
