Unfortunately, many individuals experience personal injuries that require a lot of time to heal and require multiple doctor visits, surgeries, and – our least favorite part – a lot of money to pay for. Read on and consider the following scenario regarding someone whose quality of life was dwindling because of personal injuries he’d acquired.
Recently, a man saw a former high school classmate at a local clinic. He’d just come from his annual physical and he was walking down the hall toward him. They hadn’t seen each other for many years and the conversation got around to what he was doing? Was he still working or maybe retired?
He said he was retired, but for the last year and a half, he’d been sidetracked from enjoying life because of having been hit by a drunk driver. He’d suffered injuries to both shoulders, his lower back, and one of his wrists. He’d had multiple surgeries, with more on the schedule. He also mentioned that aside from all the pain, discomfort, surgeries, recoveries and time in hospitals, the bill collectors had started calling. As if all of that wasn’t enough, he mentioned that his insurance company keeps calling, asking to settle.
The man asked him if he’d talked to an attorney and was surprised when he said he had not. It was obvious he had no idea what benefit an attorney might be for him in this situation. He was hungry for help.
