I was struck by a car while cycling in San Francisco. It was 100% the driver's fault. My injuries were a split chin, a broken tooth, and cartilage damage in my knee, along with a destroyed bicycle.
CHIN: I recieved two stitches on my chin, and there is obvious scarring about the size of a peanut.
TOOTH: I recieved a full crown on my front tooth.
KNEE: MRI's and X-Rays and they show a 3mm "flap" of cartilage under the patella. I've been going to physical therapy for a few months, and believe that arthroscopic surgery going to happen.
As a result of my knee injury, I can no longer ride my bicycle, snowboard, go hiking, play sports, etc. Standing from a seated position, climbing stairs etc causes pain.
Total medical bills so far are about 10k not including surgery, which is about 8k.I hired a personal injury attorney, and am just waiting for all physical therapy/surgery to be completed before the attorney files a demand to the insurance company.
