Has anyone on the OT ever been in a bad wreck?


Was it your fault? What where your injuries?

Did you think about suing or sued/ have been sued?


Personally, I've only been in a fender bender (wasn't even that) riding in the back seat in BHM traffic.

Yes

I was 12, so no.

I was actually pretty good. Just some really bad seat belt burn. My mom gashed her head pretty good and my brother was also hurt. Other guy that we hit was f'd pretty badly.

I have been in several bad wrecks. Hospitalized for 2 of them. Cuts, bruises, broken bones. No legal action needed. Insurance took care of everything.

An old man T-boned me in his Cadillac when I was going 40 mph. He wasn't supposed to be driving. My knee went into the steering column, my airbag didn't deploy, and my head hit the windshield. I was fine, though. My knee getting jammed in the steering column probably saved me from further injury.

Knee hurts in the winter, though.

re: Has anyone on the OT ever been in a bad wreck?


got smashed from behind by a truck and pushed into the truck in front of me. basically squished my truck, totalled it, frickers. I didn't sue though, I am starting to have random back pains now but I dont think it was from the wreck because that was two years ago

I almost sued though because it was a shithole insurance agency and they were holding back the payment for my truck and I told them if it wasn't in my mailbox in 24 hours they would be hearing from my lawyer. It arrived the next morning

sorry about your friend.

I fell asleep at the wheel once and totaled a vehicle at red light about ten years ago. Surprisingly hitting that car saved me life.

No.

Dislocated my outside metarsal below the pinky toe it, broke at the base, and it pushed through the next three metatarsals, snapping them like toothpicks. Three surgeries, spent three months on crutches, and now have a crooked toe.

Thought about it, but the chick that crossed the center line and plowed into me was not even 19 (so, not her parent's responsibility anymore), and was driving a $1500 Geo Tracker. I *could* have sued her, but what would I have gotten? A settlement that would have garnished $10 a week from her minimum wage paycheck for 20 years?

My lawyer wrote a sternly worded letter, and got what little money they could from her 10/20/10 insurance.

In high school a chick ran a stop sign and t boned me. Spent me spinning into a large pine tree and my truck was literally wrapped around it. Nothing more than a few scratches. Cops couldn't figure out how I didn't get hurt.

Didn't sue. My family and hers were friends so we didn't sue.

I switched lanes too early because I was impatient with the slow car in front of me on the interstate. My back bumper hit a Mack truck's front bumper, caused me to spin into the wall going 50. Car was totaled. No airbags came out and I didn't have a scratch on me.

Truck driver tried to claim injury.

I ramped a rental car 90 feet off a dirt embankment in south america. Shattered 2 vertebrae and herniated a disk. Paid a local cop to uncuff me from the hospital bed and took the first flight back to the states before the rental car company found out.

re: Has anyone on the OT ever been in a bad wreck?


I swerved to miss a tree that had fallen in the road, lost control of the SUV, rolled it over and then slammed into a concrete culvert.

Broke all my ribs on my right side, punctured and collapsed lung, grade 3 laceration of my liver, internal bleeding, and sever hematomas on my back and ass.

4 days in the ICU and 4 days in a room, cheast tube the whole time. The Dilaudid pain pump was straight fiya.

I would have gotten my second medflight ride within 12 months but due to the inclement weather, I missed out on the chopper ride.
:kicksdirt:

Being all high on pain meds and getting a chopper ride is pretty cool. Recovering from broken ribs and getting catheters is not cool.

Since it was just a single car accident, there were no lawsuits. I did pay for the mailboxes I took out, but not because I was sued or had to.
