Really sucks that it all took so long, but at least you have something as you say. Good to hear!

Re: finally ....

I am happy to report that after nearly two years of trying to get justice I have prevailed. The guy was a real piece of work but luckily when you're lying a trained judge can tell whats what. I got a monetary settlement that at least covers all my expenses and a bit extra. It's not as much as I hoped for, but a lot better than the nothing I had. A quick word of advice --- If you ever get in any type of accident - Before Anything --TAKE PICTURES - then talk etc etc. If I had taken pictures right away I would have walked away with a lot more and that shit would have gone to jail. Next no matter what you feel or think of your condition go immediately to a doctor and get checked out ,I was so full of adrenalin I didn't realize how injured I was until the next day and not immediately seeking treatment weakened my case. Also they will ask if you're injured never say you aren't - if anything say you don't know as you're too shaken up to know. I was scared of them trying to send me to a hospital and charges for it that I told 911 that I wasn't injured and this also weakened my position - even though I was obviously in shock. I hope that my sharing this will help someone someday. Just remember -DOCUMENT first then worry about anything else and don't comment on your well being - just go get checked out. Cheers ~
This is the sad state of US health care coverage. People can't afford health or accident insurance or they have it, but fear that the out of pocket extra expenses will do them in financially. So glad I'm not a part of that anymore.

Good to hear the update.
Apart from the civil settlement, did the guy get any criminal punishment ?
