Personal Injuries to Teenager While Driving
Personal Injuries from Totaled Car
My name is Zack. I suffered the following personal injuries: 2 Herniated discs, one cervical and one lumbar PTSD.
I was only 16 when I was driving with my mom and we were driving down Red Bug Lake road.
We were crossing over Tuskawiila Rd. and a man driving an SUV blew through a steady red light going at least 45 mph and hit us on the drivers side.
I actually saw the car and knew it was going to hit us. So of course we both braced for the impact.
Once he hit us the car spun for what felt like and eternity until we came to a stop just missing a metal pole.
The police came to the scene and ticketed the other driver for blowing the light. The driver of the SUV said he was driving his company vehicle and has a million dollar policy.
I believe he must have been distracted, probably texting because he didn't even attempt to stop. I had an MRI showing the two herniations and started physical therapy.
As a result of my injuries I had to drastically change my lifestyle. I was a senior at Lake Mary Preparatory School at the time and was involved with various different sports.
I wasn't even permitted to exercise (running or lifting weights). This was a major part of my life and caused me to become very depressed,
I had to start taking Depression medication. I will never know what I could haver done athletically (luckily I am smart and got an academic scholarship for college).
I would love to discuss the details of my case with you. Thank you
