A Car Accident Changed My Life

I had no idea I would have to hire a car accident attorney in Sacramento after being involved in a pretty bad accident. I thought insurance companies were there to take care of the victims, but I learned that they are there to make sure they get the better deal during a settlement offer. I was in a medically induced coma for five days because the pain was just too much for me to take. The doctors said that this would allow my body to rest, and it would not cause even further stress if I had been awake and had to endure everything while conscious.

My wife told me that she thought those were the longest days of her life, but then she changed her mind on the day they brought me out of it. I was in so much pain, and I begged them to make it stop. I was put back into a coma for two more days, and then I was weaned back to the land of the living. It was then that I found out the extent of my injuries. One of my passions was art, so finding out that I would probably never use my right hand again because of the damage was heartbreaking.

There were other injuries that concerned the doctors even more, but that is the one that I focused on. I had no idea what I would do if I couldn’t do my art works anymore, and I fell into a deep depression. When the insurance company offered a settlement figure to cover my medical expenses as well as a month of lost wages, I had to laugh. I had lost so much more than that, my wife had as well. That is when we contacted an attorney who is going to make the people who did this to me pay for what they have done. I know life will get better one day, it just has to. Right now, I am just focused on getting through the days. I am just glad I don’t have to focus on the fight to be taken care of, since my attorney is doing a superb job on his own for that.
