I remember driving past a middle school and there is a police substation off next to it and I saw a cop car. I was very aware of what was going on around me. Getting ready to cross an intersection, I could see that there was a row of cars trying to turn in front of me and the last car, it looked like he stopped and he decided to shoot out and we had a head on collision. It was really unreal, everything went in slow motion. I remember getting out of the car and smelling smoke and looking up at the light and seeing that it was still green. I realized that I need to get my kids out of the car cause we were right in the intersection so I moved as quick as I could. My kids, there was just a lot of crying and screaming. It made for a very traumatic, traumatic day. My three year old daughter at the time, she was strapped to a gurney and didn’t know what was going on. I couldn’t explain to her and I couldn’t be with her cause I was trying to talk to the police officers and also trying to calm my boys down. So it was just awful. It is one thing to be in a car accident by yourself or with other adults, but to be by yourself with your three small children, I definitely went into “mommy mode.” They were my first concern.
Bachus & Schanker made my life so much easier because I had one point of contact that was my case manager and I wasn’t dealing with an up and down “Ok, well what’s happening now?” I knew I could just call and talk to my case manager and I would get a response. There wasn’t any “Oh, we forgot about this.” I just want to say “Thank You” because I know there is probably a lot more working parts than just what I saw with speaking to my case manager and my attorney. I know there is a lot more going on behind the scenes and a lot more people to thank. I think you guys (Bachus & Schanker) did an excellent job. I really appreciate the ease of completing the settlement. Definitely, if you are in a car accident call Bachus & Schanker because it would have made my life so much easier if I would have just called them from the start. I’m just glad that I called them when I did. Because I probably had been lost and underpaid and had bills to pay without them.
