Don't laugh off the possible injuries. Stop talking to people about this and stop posting about this.
Get an attorney.
DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING YOUR ATTORNEY HAS NOT TOLD YOU TO SIGN!!
I have been in six wrecks in cars or trucks.
The long term injuries and pains may make you regret being the nice guy or the good guy.
Where do nice guys finish?
Here are 3 that happened in a 4 month time frame - almost to the day(s)
I had a 1973 Mercury Marquis Brougham that weighed 6009 pounds by the factory door sticker.
In that car I got rear ended at about 45 mph and the impact bent my seat.
2 months later I got side swiped and spun almost 180 degrees while I was driving UPHILL!
About a month later I got T Boned in my replacement car and it spun me around almost 360 degrees. The woman who hit me ran a red light at about 45 mph. She walked over to my car and asked me if I had insurance as if it was my fault!
Off the record she admitted fault, and yes there was a witness who was willing to testify.
I was not hurt at the time and I was not in pain at the time.
How do I feel 15 years later?
Aches, pains, loss of movement and muscle spasms in my back.
In Oregon, hitting someone from behind is defenseless. Reaching a monetary settlement is all that can happen if there are no deaths.
You can't get screwed by someone, at this point you can only screw yourself and screw up your future.
