Lisa’s Story: Surviving a Head-On Crash With a Drunk Driver
It should have been a simple turn. Lisa was approaching a stop sign as another car was turning right onto her road. Suddenly, the other driver crossed the middle line and struck her car head-on. The crash was powerful enough to deploy both vehicles’ airbags and make them undrivable. When the police arrived at the scene, they quickly arrested the other driver for a DUI.
Immediately after the accident, Lisa thought that she was uninjured. However, within a week, she was suffering from severe head, shoulder, and upper back pain. Even though she didn’t have health insurance, Lisa went to the ER for help.
Lisa’s Pain Made It Difficult to Work and Do Her Daily Routine
Her doctors examined Lisa’s back and head and ordered x-rays. They diagnosed her with severe muscle spasms and soft tissue injuries from the collision. Unfortunately, because Lisa didn’t have health insurance, her options were limited – she couldn’t afford to pay for specialists or a lot of testing. She was prescribed muscle relaxers and pain medication, which did not seem to help.
Before the crash, Lisa enjoyed her fast-paced job as a server at a local restaurant. She was on her feet constantly, carrying heavy trays and bending to clean tables. Her back and shoulder injuries made her work nearly impossible, although she did her best. She now dreaded going to work, due to pain, headaches, and shortness of breath.
It was then Lisa knew she needed help. She knew of Andy Citrin’s reputation and willingness to stand up for drunk driving victims, and gave his Daphne office a call.
