Permanetly Disabled After Auto Accident
I was on my way home from work, approximately 3 blocks from home. I had the right away, no stop signs or traffic lights. I was crossing a street in which did have a stop sign. The vehicle that ran the stop sign was exceeding the speed limit. Approximately 65mph in a 25 mph zone. It was a young teenage girl around 19 years old who did not have her head lights on. She ran the stop sign and broad sided me the her vehicle spun around and hit my vehicle again. Her insurance was lapsed and her temporary registration was also lapsed. I remember being dazed gut able to walk around. My husband was walking in the field to the right of the road. My vehicle was pushed toward him. He had to jump out of the way to avoid being hit. I went to the 24 hour clinic. By the time I was seen my back and neck was in excruciating pain. Well now more than two years later, I have already had surgery on my neck. I am a candidate for surgery on my lower back. I am in pain constantly. I can stand for about 15 minutes at a time, walk maybe a half of a block on a good day. I experienced brain injuries in which my thought process is effected and my memory is very pore. I have trouble retaining anything. I finally have been app proved for social security. However I do not have health insurance any longer. The girl that hit me was given a new car from her father and only received a ticket for failure to yield the right of way. I will no longer be able to drive. Not only did I suffer the impact of this accident, but my three children and husband have also experienced great losses as well. I try to remain optimistic, but it is difficult most days. I feel that the girl that hit me should be held accountable for my medical expenses and loose her driving privileges also. This will effect me and my family for the rest of our lives. I know I have left out many crucial details of this ordeal but Thank you for listening to my story.
