Three weeks ago I had a bad car wreck. I was driving in the left hand lane of a two-lane semi-highway, driving 50 in a 55 mph zone. I came over a small hill and suddenly in front of me were three large rolls of carpet -- the log sized rolls that you see standing against the walls in showrooms. They were absolutely smack dab in the middle of the lane, all lying at angles, kitty-corner. There was heavy fast-moving traffic in the lane to my right. There was no room between the rolls of carpet and the concrete median on my left. You know how in an accident on one level it seems to be in slow mo and on another it happens in a split second. Somewhere in my mind I was thinking whether it would be more dangerous to plow into the first roll of carpet or swerve around and risk side-swiping cars in the right lane (the police later told me if I had chosen to run into the carpets, my daughter & I would likely have been thrown through the windshield). I slammed on the brakes and chose the swerve option. Managed to squeak around the first two rolls but caught a corner of the third roll with my tire, propelling me into a concrete median, which caused the car to skid along at a nice clip on its left (driver's) side for a while, before turning onto its roof and skidding some more. When it came to a stop, I was unconscious and hauled into an ambulance with 4 broken ribs, torn neck ligaments, a gash that needed sutures, a totaled car, and no idea where my 13 yr. old daughter who had been in the passenger seat was. When they pulled me out of the car I saw her -- she had broken her window out with the heels of her hands, remembering someone telling her they were the strongest part of her hands, and crawled out, causing shards of glass to be embedded in her hands, knees, and feet. By the way, for what I believe is the first time since she outgrew an infant seat, she had by fluke forgotten to put her seatbelt on. It's a total instinctive reflex in my kids after their early years of training. The police & paramedic on site looking at the car said if she had her seatbelt on, the caving in of the roof of the car would have crushed her head into her neck and broken her neck and she most likely would not be alive. Now to my question. Local lawyers have been of no assistance. The police here are .... well, never mind the adjectives. The police report should be released in a couple days. They threw the carpet away, apparently didn't check for tags. The driver who lost those rolls in the highway was either the most oblivious person on the planet or totally negligent. There must be some way of finding out who was transporting carpet on that part of that road on that date at that time. But I don't know how. Anyone??? Someone didn't get carpet they were expecting ....either at a retail store, or outlet, or a home or office... Yes, we had full coverage on the car, including uninsured motorist and hospitalization, but it still won't cover the med bills, and I've been seriously disabled for 3 weeks. I'd sure like to hold someone responsible. Julie Krueger thoroughly frustrated by meds, pain, hospital bills, & lack of transportation (insurance co's aren't exactly expedicious).
