The most annoying part of the last 24 hours? My phone has been ringing non stop with calls from lawyers and "medical referral" services. 11 calls from lawyers, 3 from chiropractors, 3 from the "referral" services I spoke of, and in the mail today I got a letter from another lawyer. They all mention I need protection from the evil insurance companies, which is ironic because the insurance company has been great, I think it's the ambulance chasing freak show I think I need protection from.
They must hang out at the police station and buy copies of all the accident reports for the day or something. Ridiculous!
Glad you are OK.
As someone who has went through a very similar thing, I strongly suggest that you go to the doctor. Things happen to your back/head that you might not realize are issues at the moment.
In any event, the insurance Co. of the person at fault is going to cut you a check of some kind for personal injury/pain/suffering so that they can close the book on that part of a potential payout. It could be more. It could be less.
You don't to be on the less if it turns out that you can't bend over to tie your shoes some mornings say, 6 months from now.
Besides if nothing else, the doctor will give you a walmart bag full of muscle relaxer samples that pharm reps throw at them. Again, you might say, boo today. But they might come in very handy in a few days when your back muscles decide to all lock up.
BTW, if you got out of that and can actually make it through a whole page of text without losing your concentration (i.e even your noggin' is good to go), you probably ought to schedule an appointment with a clergyman too because your guardian angel truly was looking out for you.
