The traffic was heavy, but normal for rush hour and moving steadily. They were in the middle lane, cars on both sides of them. In front of them was a small truck. Suddenly there was a tire bouncing straight for them. There was no place to go, the tire was going to hit the windshield! He yelled at her, “Get down! Cover your face!” The tire shattered the windshield, the air bag exploded, he couldn’t see, something hit the car from behind and the car spun around. His wife was screaming. He passed out.

Something hurt, but he couldn’t figure out what. His wife was talking to him, asking if he was hurt. He wasn’t sure, but thought he might be. Someone was standing outside the car, asking him if he was ok. He didn’t want to sit for six hours in some ER. “Sure, I’ll be fine, just give me a minute.” Maybe he’d go see his doctor later. He told his wife to call someone to come pick them up. He talked to the policeman, pretended he felt a lot better than he did and told the driver who hit them he thought he’d be fine. Eventually the tow truck and their ride arrived, and they went home.

What did they do wrong? He kept saying he was ok, which was both medically and legally foolish. He was creating a record that he hadn’t been hurt. They didn’t take pictures with a cell phone or get names of witnesses. The driver of the car that hit them from behind is saying that it was their fault. This is not a time to be polite. If you learn that the other driver’s story differs from yours, make sure that your version gets into the police report. See a doctor as soon as possible; many injuries don’t show up immediately. Contact an experienced attorney to protect yourself.
