It sounds to me like the accident was actually your fault. If I were you, I'd feel lucky that the other 2 people involved don't sue you for 2.2 million.

You got off easy.

:Years and years ago a friend of mine was involved in accident like this, but he was the middle car. I never understood why he was considered at fault for rear ending the car in front of him after got rear ended. Thought the rear most car that initialted it would have been liebale for the whole mess.

Wait! why was I responding ?

Oh yeah,

The couple in the front most car sued him not just for the damage and injuries suffered
but because the injuries specifically rendered them "unable to have relations".

His insurance company settled out of court.
Dont remember for how much.

Sorry to hear your starting to feel pain man but glad to know nothing severe happened. I had a friend in a kinda same situation you were in except the 3rd car driver was on her phone texting and hit the middle car so hard the truck went halfway through the car. Luckily my friend saw it coming and jumped out of his car just in time cause his car was pushed into the middle of the street and then destroyed by a garbage truck!!!

I would go speak to an attorney and see what they say

It's pretty obvious that you are the bottom of the barrel of the BKB folder huh Gio?

How many alts you have here? I lost count on the PSA forums.

And if you had ANY clue what you were talking about you might be worth listening to.

Now go back to the petri dish

ooooh I'm thinking my lawsuit should have a number like some of the silly ones on Ebay.

Like people who sell a Jordan for $2323.23 BIN/BO.

So my favorite players in Boston sports are:

Ray Borque (77)
Tedy Brucshi (54)
Jim Rice (14)
Cendic Maxwell (31)

So I should prolly sue for $775,414.31

That would be SOOOOOOOOOOO Sick, sweet, dirty and mojo don't you think??

hope ya feel better.

i did not vote, however i do think you should ask a lawyer.

this is not entitlement, IMO, it is the way the system works. You get hit by someone and get injured (even slightly) you have to sue. chances are had this happened to anyone else, they would sue. not going with the system and taking the "high ground" gets you nowhere. to the people that say this is entitlement, they are dumb, or have rear-ended people and been sued before. use the system to your advantage, because 99% of the time that system is gonna kick your a$$.

Had you been unlucky, you might have been pushed into an i-beam sticking off the back of a flatbed trailer and been DEAD. You got lucky and have whiplash.

Whiplash can also effect you for the long term, if you're young when the accident happened, you might not feel it for a while. but 4 years go by and you start having worse problems that lead to missed work and issues with missed "relations", and at that point in time you have no recourse (depending upon the state you're in and their statute of limitations etc. etc.)

sue now, if you win stick the money into a CD. if 5 years from now you feel no adverse effects, contact the person you sued and work something out with them. i am seriously saying this from experience, think what might happen in the future if the injury could come back and hurt you long term. and go see your damn doctor, now.

good luck

For those who "know" me, thanks for playing along.

I am not a member of the entitlement society. In fact if you look where I voted I voted No in the poll.

I suggest everyone do what I did if you are actually in an accident like this.

I reported to my insurance company, I consulted with an attorney about my rights should I wake up in a week and can't feel my legs. I made sure the car was OK and chalked if up no "No harm. No File"

Personal Injury lawyers are a necessary evil as the do provide protection for people truly injured in accidents like this. I'm happy to say that after 3 days and during my 1st day back to work I am just a little fatigued and have some minor discomfort in the back of my neck and a headache.

Advil is wonderful and I expect to be back to pre accident state by Saturday or Sunday!

i was serious as all hell in my post. if something happens to aggravate the injury from this accident later, you will have no recourse. i would, at the very least go see your doctor. hope all turns out well.

god bless, BTW.

This reminds me of the time this neighborhood kid blew off his finger with a M80 firecracker. The tip of his finger flew and stab a man in the eye. The man wanted to sue the kid.

This thread makes me laugh more than it should since I worked in claims for an auto insurance company for five years of my life I will not get back. :-

For as much crap that people give insurance companies, if you realized the type of people/claims that came in daily you'd realize why your rates are through the roof.
