Two years ago, a drunk driver hit my van as I was driving home from work. I was sent to the hospital with 12 broken bones and a serious concussion. I was thankful that I was alive after the injury, but I started to panic as my hospital stay dragged on for three weeks. I simply did not have the money for my medical bills, and I had missed a lot of work. As soon as I was discharged from the hospital, I started contacting the other driver's insurance company so I could file an injury claim. I felt that the facts of my injury were basic, but the claim stalled after six months. I contacted an attorney in my desperation, and the experience of the professional helped garner a court case and a settlement fairly quickly. I am sharing my story, so you can skip all the legal mistakes I made.
