It was a nice day outside when you noticed that traffic was unusually slow up ahead. You slowed your own vehicle, taking time to put on your brakes. In fact, the traffic ahead slowed so suddenly that you even turned on your hazard lights.
Despite taking those steps to warn others around you, the driver of the vehicle behind you must not have realized the potential dangers ahead. As a result, they could not stop fast enough and struck your vehicle from behind. That force pushed your vehicle into the car ahead of you, crushing your car from the front and back.
The shock of the accident, combined with the injuries you suffered, meant that you had to stay in the hospital for several weeks and continue to require ongoing medical care. Now, you’re getting low on funds and aren’t sure what to do.
