In January of 2017, I received a phone call while driving. I safely parked my vehicle on the shoulder of the road to answer the call. I was completely off the road with ample space around me when another driver smoked the rear of my vehicle. I suffered a concussion and there are periods of time missing from my memory. However, after the accident I learned that the other driver was using his cell phone and was lost. He went to pull to the side of the road to figure out where he was going and did not see my vehicle. I used to be a boxer, so I can take a hit, but this was something else. The impact was so severe that the frame of my Suburban twisted like an accordion. This incident only recently occurred, but it has already had a significant impact on my life. I couldn’t feel my hands or feet for two months afterwards; I had difficulty urinating because the impact was so severe that my seatbelt caused damage to my bladder. My doctors tell me that I will never be able to work in a physical career again. I build homes for a living, so I have no idea what I am going to do…
