Re: Lawyers wonder why they get a bad rep..
I was driving to work on wednesday (snow) and some women ran into the snow bank, lost control and hit me front of the car and pushed us both off the highway. Thankfully no injuries to either of us, she was cited and her insurance already called to take full liability. However, prior to them calling that afternoon, my own insurance had already taken car of the first couple of steps. I was hit around 8:00, by 10:30 I had picked up a rental car, and my car was on the way to the shop to be investigated for damage (don't know yet if its going to be totaled or if they'll fix it)
Anyhoo, this weekend I got two seperate letters from different lawyers telling me of my rights. One even included that accident report. Kind of scary how easily they can obtain that information.
