May 2, 2007 started out like so many other days in my life. I went to work, came home, and went for a jog around City Park. The next thing I know its June and I was waking up in Craig Hospital.
Apparently I was hit by a car as I crossed 17th Avenue on my way home. According to the police report, the car was traveling around 45 mph and was totaled from the impact. As for me, I had to be resuscitated at the scene and was on life support for a few days. The amazing doctors at Denver Health literally saved my life. Its true what they say; if you are seriously injured this is the place to go!
After a two week stay at Denver Health I was fortunate enough to be transferred to the world renowned Craig Rehabilitation Hospital. I cannot say enough great things about the staff at Craig Hospital. From the doctors, to the nurses, physical therapists and on, the staff at Craig was nothing short of amazing.
All in all it took me close to a year to recover from my extensive injuries. Many times I am asked what I learned from the experience. Well, to start off there are the obvious things. Make sure you tell your loved ones just how much they mean to you everyday! Practically speaking, make sure you have enough insurance including uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage.
I suppose some of the more valuable lessons I learned help me relate and empathize with clients. Most people do not understand how vulnerable and terrifying it is going through a serious accident. Unless you have been through it, it is very difficult to comprehend the worry, self-doubt, and frustration that accompany serious injury. I think many people take for granted the ability to work and earn a living for their family until it is taken away. In my case, I was a hair away from not being able to do the job I truly love.
Without a doubt, my experience makes me a much better personal injury attorney. In fact, I have never been more proud to represent people who many times are at their most vulnerable state.
