Now, let us dispel with some obvious naysayer comebacks to this conclusion. Sure, there are accidents where literally no one is hurt. There are fender benders with parked cars where the only vehicle damaged was the person who was at fault, they are not hurt, have insurance, and either don’t care about the damage or have insurance to cover most of it and money to cover everything else. That being said, almost no other accident in Las Vegas is without repercussions. Many is the accident which doesn’t make the news, doesn’t make a headline, but irrevocably changes a life or lives.
That’s the focus of this blog, and the point: major damage can be done that no one hears about, no one knows about, except those intimately involved. And we appreciate the blog writer talking about this, since it’s important for people to understand how often this happens, how real the consequences of texting and driving or drinking and driving or anything else that takes your mind off the road are. The blog details the case of one woman who was badly injured in a Las Vegas car accident, and her physical mobility, her independence, her ability to work and have a life were ruined, out the window, gone. Insurance didn’t cover it, even though both parties were insured.
“She’s put on 70 pounds since the accident. ‘I’m so depressed and I’m eating like I’m still working,’ she said. ‘I don’t like to rely on other people. I raised four kids of my own and eight grandkids.’
What adds to Bullocks’ depression are financial worries. Though her insurance has taken care of virtually all but $9,000 of her $100,000 in medical bills, she couldn’t afford the copays for physical therapy.
Her short-term disability insurance, which gave her around two-thirds of her more than $3,500-a-month salary, ended more than a month ago.
Now she’s waiting for her long-term disability to kick in. Her doctors said she can no longer work.”
