I love cats.
Just got the accident photos. His bumper is pushed in flush with the drivers side headlight so he can't claim I darted out in front of his car. You can also see the meat in my head, the gash is pretty nasty.
Upon closer inspection of the photo there is no meat, just blood along the laceration. Still pretty messed up.
Upon my request I had additional Xrays done on Tuesday and this morning I was informed that my 2nd rib on the ride hand side is fractured.
For a week after the accident I had rib pain when sitting up in bed. It felt like two ribs were touching. Xrays have confirmed I have a broken rib. Also, after walking around town last weekend I had leg pain so Im waiting to see an Ortho to see if I have a torn muscle or tendon.
Spoke with my Lawyers office this morning and emailed them photos, I was told that the insurance company has denied liability thus far and that the driver that hit me has hired a traffic attorney.
You are doing well if you can walk around town. Do you have a job? If you do, you should have only missed a few days of work.
My leg gets stiff around the knee when I sit down for more than 10 minutes, I can't twist my knee and I have occasional nerve pain in my thigh and calf. Aside from that it hurts to fully extend my leg which worries me because I have all the symptoms of a torn meniscus.
As far as work goes I stock shelves/freezers in a kitchen. Due to the broken rib I can't do any heavy lifting for at least 9 more weeks so I'll be out of work for 12 weeks total if I don't need surgery on my knee.
The driver who hit me got found Not Guilty yesterday. I stood outside the courtroom for 2 hours and was not allowed to go in nor was I allowed to testify against him like I was asked to do. The other witness never showed up either.
The old man was confused as hell. He arrived late, and when he came out of the court room his lawyer had to explain to him why he won the case and his wife had to steer him in the right direction to get out of the Courthouse. He definately is not fit to drive a vehicle.
He didn't even recognize me, he actually tried to climb in the elevator with me and I let the door shut in his face.
The only good news is my personal defense lawyer said it doesn't affect them in any way and they're still going to go after the insurance company.
I am taking that you/he were in traffic court and that he was found not guilty of his traffic citation? If so:
Who told you that you could not go inside the courtroom and watch his trial?
Was your lawyer present?
Did anyone explain to you how he won?
Were you asked to be there? IF so, by whom?
Do you know what traffic violation he was charged with?
The good news is that a person does not have to be found guilty of a traffic violation to be found at fault of injuring someone.
