I just got an email that made me both scared and relieved at the same time! My brother, the one who lives in Vancouver, does a lot of work in the US. Earlier this week he was in Seattle and he was hit by a car while crossing the street! Yeah, that’s the part of the email that scared the heck out of me!
Luckily for him (and I guess the driver) he was only knocked over and bruised up. His back and neck are a little sore too so he might end up having whiplash. Of course he was taken to the hospital right away so all of his injuries were taken care of an documented just in case he decides he wants to find a Seattle personal injury lawyer.
We aren’t the suing kind of family, but as it turns out the driver of the car that hit him was impaired and ended up being charged with a DUI. That really ticked my brother off … people who’ve been drinking just shouldn’t get behind the wheel of a car! I mean, my brother could have been killed! So yeah, he’s thinking about suing the guy. I don’t know if he will or not, but it’s on the table right now.
