As of today, June 12, 2018, we’ve still not seen a resolution to the car accident. Well, nothing meaninngful anyway.
Of the three insurance companies we’re dealing with now (none of them mine), one has said they’ll accept 50% responsibility for the accident and the repair costs for my car. The other two companies, even though they were directly behind me, insist that they bear NO responsibility for the accident.
That’s crap, of course, and I’ve said as much to my attorney and his minion.
Thus, they are in the process of drawing up the paperwork for a lawsuit. I’m tired of the deliberate delays and b.s. that are clearly designed to make me throw up my hands, relent, and accept whatever garbage settlement they might throw my way.
Do they think I’m stupid and will settle for anything they deign to put in my face? No, please don’t answer that.
I’m not that stupid, and I hired an attorney in the first place, because I know full well that these jackasses would and will try to do me wrong and without someone who knows the ins and outs of the law, that might well happen.
I’m still seeing a chiropractor for the aftereffects of whiplash. It’s gone from three days a week to finally only one day a week, but tonight, on the way home from downtown Los Angeles, my back started to spasm. Clearly things are still not doing well in there, and I felt that I deserve serious compensation for my inconvenience, discomfort, and actual injuries.
You do realize, don’t you, that the accident occurred nearly 4.5 months ago? Yes, it’s been that long, and I haven’t driven my car in that time, as I don’t want to drive him until I am sure that he’s safe to drive.
Have any of you gone through something like this? How did you handle it? How did it ultimately work out for you?
Inquiring minds want to know.
