Three days ago a woman hit me with her car as I was crossing an intersection. I was in the crosswalk with the walk light on. She was trying to make a left turn before the traffic going straight started moving. I believe she was going around 15-20 mph. when I was struck. My body cracked her windshield and I was flung from the car when she stopped. I was taken to the hospital and checked out and thankfully I don't any broken bones. My backside is bruised and my neck and legs hurt. There were witnesses listed in the police report that saw the whole thing. Her insurance company called me yesterday but I was unable to answer the phone and they left a message. I am worried they will try to avoid paying for my hospital visit.
I'm clearly upset by her negligence as it could have been much worse.The doctor at the ER wrote me an excuse to miss a day of work but I just worked the next day. I have mild pain irritations and my neck has increasingly been getting more tender so I feel I need to have that looked at. I'll have to look into getting a lawyer I suppose. Thank you to everyone for answering.
