My Car Accident Experiences

I have been in two major car accidents in my life. Actually, I don’t like using the word, major, because no one was hurt. Thank God. They were both serious enough though, that my cars were totaled. Yep.

The first one happened when there was lots of traffic on a busy street. I was on my lunch hour from work so no kids were with me. It was bumper to bumper traffic when all of a sudden there was a good length of space in front of me and we got moving a little faster. As we were again slowly down, the car behind me was not paying attention and did not slow down. We don’t know if she was on her cell phone or what but she slammed on her breaks to late and bumped me so hard that I bumped the car in front of me. I saw her coming in my rear view mirror and braced myself for the impact.

I had never been involved in anything like this before. Between insurance companies and workers comp lawyers, I was not sure how it was all going to play-out. I ended up settling and receiving a little cash out of the whole thing which went towards my chiropractic x-rays and adjustments.

I hoped to never have to experience anything like it again! Unfortunately, I found myself in another accident a year ago. I had my kids with me and I’m ashamed to admit that it was completely my fault. I am embarrassed to go into all the details, but let’s just say I’m glad that a motorcycle accident lawyer didn’t have to get involved. No, I didn’t hit a motorcycle, but I very well could have. *hangs head in shame*.

Have you been in a ‘major’ car accident before?
