Thank you, I really appreciate that :) And that is exactly how I have felt for years..Im just waiting. I have literally stood 3 feet from that man on more then one occasion in family court. I had to bite my tongue-especially being in the Mayville court building. Eesshh..he looked right at me and continued his conversation with someone. Having no idea who I was..so sad. I personally feel that if I had made such a negative impact on someone's life, I would surely remember their face!<quoted text>
God bless you, sweetie for taking care of your family and pushing forward after all that happened to you. Life is so unfair sometimes. All I've got to say is to hang in there. Karma always has a way of coming back around and evening things out even when people get away with something.
As for the money, I could sit here all day and describe everything in detail as to what Ive lost and what that money could never give back or compensate but it would be pointless. My children were small..1 1/2 and 3. I feel they were robbed as well as me. The total settlement was $90,000 but I received a third of that. A third went to my lawyer and the rest to pay medical bills back. A little back story first..
I had been at my job as an aid to individuals with developmental disabilities just to the point where I was about to qualify for health insurance. When I was hit, I was on my way home from a mandatory work training. Which I might as well throw that story in here too. Im not asking for pity, but anyone who has been a single parent can truly understand how hard it can be. My children and I were starting over. We had been living in a nice apartment for a few months, I was attending college full time and working my ass off. My little match box car decided it wasn't going to start that day, and I thank god for that. My ex was nice enough to let me borrow his much more sturdy, but beautiful Mustang. I know it took the hit much better then my car would have..anyways, on my way home-I do believe the road is called Hartfield-Stockton Rd. I could be wrong, but I didnt normally take that route. I was going to turn left onto Elm Flat Rd. I remember looking in the rearview mirror, waiting for the oncoming car to pass so I could take the left turn. When I had looked in the mirror there was nothing, which is why I was caught so off guard. The next thing I knew I felt the hit. Im not entirely sure what happened but the car was pushed down and across the road. Im not sure what parts of my body hit what nor do I care to think about it..but I do remember I couldnt feel my arms or hands. I looked up and "Mr.Szot" glanced at me then drove away. However he totaled the Mustang and his car broke down shortly down the road. I was starflighted to Hamot and was really out of it. Im not even sure if he was even arrested.
*Ill continue this..I type a bunch and the comp freezes and then its all retyping again :/
