I bought a truck because I don’t feel safe on the highway in a tiny sedan.
I watched a close friend of mine die on life support after getting in a highway accident in one of those tiny smart cars that were popular 10 years ago.
It was heartbreaking to witness and it made a serious impression on me. I had a small sedan and started to seriously consider getting a safer alternative. That’s when I started looking at SUVs and pickup trucks. Even though they tend to be more expensive than other cars, I settled on a pickup truck so I can use it for hauling things like mulch and gravel when I’m doing landscaping projects outside. Unfortunately, I was recently rear ended while driving to the grocery store and despite my back bumper receiving no damage, the whiplash caused pain in my neck. I wasted no time at all calling several different personal injury attorneys right after the car accident occured. First I tried a number that I see on annoying TV commercials, but it ended up being a lawyer referral service instead of a law firm. I figured I’d rather trust referrals from my state’s bar association, so I reached out to them by email and explained my situation. I was relieved when my state’s bar association sent me an email a few hours later with five different personal injury attorneys in a 30 mile radius from my house. When I looked all of these attorneys up individually, they were all highly rated and considered reputable lawyers. This is a great way to find an attorney quickly if you’re faced with a sudden emergency like a car accident.
