Things quickly changed one afternoon when I was riding my bike home from university a few nights before my 15th birthday.
I was crossing a busy intersection with all of the cars at a complete stop, but the lights changed while in the middle of the crosswalk.
In an attempt to get out of the road, I passed in front of a stopped car that quickly started right when it saw the light change from red to green. Before I could get their attention, they hit me and threw me off my bike and directly into the asphalt road. When I realized what had happened and picked myself up off the pavement, I realized I was missing a front tooth and had chipped the other. My mother wanted to hurt the man that hit me with his car, but I’m blissful that the cop stopped her from getting anywhere near that man. If he hadn’t, we wouldn’t have had nearly as simple of a time in litigation as we had once we finally found a great personal injury attorney. But that last part proved to be a lot harder than any of us were expecting. You might think that there are a substantial number of personal injury attorneys in your city,but that doesn’t mean they all have the necessary experience needed to handle your own case effectively. Oddly enough, it was my mom’s estate and family law attorney who found us the amazing personal injury attorney who eventually took my case. While I wish we had gotten more cash through litigation, I was thankful for the lawyer’s legal services.
