Feeling a lot better. Not much pain anymore, but I am going a little stir-crazy.
I'm scheduled back to work (by the doctor) on sept 18th.
The medical bills (we have insurance and the other company is paying anyway) are already around 20,000, and by the time I'm done with physical therapy it'll be upwards of 50k. We don't have a lawyer, yet, because we both work in insurance and we know the claims systems fairly well. Generally, the insurance company settles for 3x medical without too much argument.
If they get smart with us, we'll go hire an "ambulance chaser" to take care of us.
If I get a downpayment on a nice house and a new moped (and stereo) I will feel satisfied. My poor moped has never seen a night outside, and it's been sitting in a yard, outside, for over two weeks, with stereo and speakers atill attached, all bashed apart.
The on-scene crew was spreading a lot of sand at the scene of the crash. That would mean I ruptured a gas tank or smashed the engine up. I don't think I'm going to pay to claim it as salvage, and just start fresh with a new ped.
Thanks for asking! If I watch anymore daytime TV, I'll surely go mad.
Did you see the photo of our computer setup? At least that's keeping me busy.
