As you all know, I love traveling! I try to drive everywhere and get the most out of all the sceneries. If you are an avid traveler like I am, you have to keep in mind the precautions and other obstacles that you may encounter as a traveler. You need to pay attention to the new areas you visit and the new people that you encounter. Not everyone is as friendly as you are and not everyone is as nice as you may think, so you have to be aware at all times. You should always have a first aid kit in your car, a jack, a jumper cable and all of the other necessities you think you may need when you come across certain difficulties as you travel. With that said, you understand that I am very cautious in my travels and you should be too.
A few months ago as I was visiting Long Island New York, I got into a pretty bad accident. I was driving eastbound on LIE 495, stuck in traffic, I stopped short and I was rear ended by a pickup truck. At the time, I was driving a small hybrid Honda and if you don’t know, those cars are not very strong. The impact pushed the trunk of my car in, crushing all that I had in there, all the way to the backseat. I got a severe whiplash and was in a lot of pain, it felt like my neck snapped.
For those of you who do not know New Yorkers, they are not very friendly. The driver that hit me immediately came out of his truck and started screaming and yelling at me while I was in the drivers seat in severe pain. The guy was cursing and screaming nasty words, he also tried to open the door and fight me. Luckily a few people came to my aid and pushed him away from the car. If it weren’t for the people there, I would have been injured pretty badly. I was taken to the hospital in an ambulance and had to stay there over night. The next day, I was discharged and was sent home with a lot of pain medication.
As soon as I got home, I did not wait, I went right on the computer and searched for Long Island personal injury lawyers. To my luck I found a really good website www.personalinjurylawyerlongisland.org, I filled in my information and got a call within 1 hour. I explained to the lawyer what happened and he invited me to the office to discuss things further. To make a long story short, they took care of everything and told me that they were going to fight for what I deserve. I was so happy and comfortable after consulting with them. I feel so relieved that this whole mess is over and done with. Remember, if you ever get into a serious accident, make sure you contact a lawyer!
