6 months ago I was involved in a head on collision as I attempted to turn left onto the Inter-State near where I live. I suspect that the little college girl was texting right as she managed to miss the first car in front of me turning left and hit me, the second car. However, I can’t know for sure. I was lucky that night and walked away from the wreck. Because I suffered no injuries and her insurance eventually covered my car I didn’t press charges or bring suit; I haven’t seen her since. In fact, I’ve waited this 6 months to say anything about it on anything resembling “social-media” in the event some consequence of that accident made itself known.
However, I am now confident that the episode has passed and I can recount the event.
The police filed the report at about 8:00 that night; it was a Thursday. Saturday afternoon I went to get the mail and I felt like Harry Potter. By Monday afternoon I was sure. But seriously. In the span of two days I received 18 rather impressive packages from attorneys specializing in injury cases. Further, I received 10 slightly less impressive packages from chiropractors and spine specialists. I’m surprised that I didn’t feel comforted that people were looking after my well being. I kinda felt like they were looking after THEIR well being.
Tonight I’m finishing the file on the accident and am putting all the pertinent documentation away.
And I’m throwing 18 solicitations for legal services along with 10 for medical services into the trash.
I wonder – Is THAT what people see when they refer to the evil corporate state?
