When I was 10 years old, my mom as well as I went on a road trip together and bonded.
All of us were driving on the interstate on our way to the mountains, when another motorcar swerved as well as hit us head-on.
The responsible driver was trying to avoid hitting a deer in the road. Instead, they hit my mom’s motorcar head-on. My poor little mom was seriously disfigured in the accident, and so was I. Both of us had to be cut out of the vehicle. My dear mom was in a coma for several nights as well as I ended up ultimately having no use of my legs. I had to meet with a physical therapist for 6 weeks after that before I finally started to receive some feeling in my feet as well as toes. I was extremely fortunate, as well as I regained full use of my limbs after a year of physical therapy with a professional PT. Shortly after the accident, my mom found an attorney in order to fight the other driver for money. The medical bills were piling up as well as my Mom as well as I were desperately struggling to pay rent. The accident attorney did not take any large amounts of money from my mom up front. Instead, they worked hard to win the injury case so they could receive some of the settlement money, though. After the insurance supplier settled with the lawyer, ultimately my mom as well as I were left with $450,000. All of our medical bills were paid as well as the relevant insurance supplier bought us a new motorcar too. Half of the money we received from the settlement went to a trust. Thank god for that lawyer.
