Drunk Driving Crash Changes Life in an Instant

What would you do, if a drunk driving crash injured your brain, and:
  • your skull broke into 24 pieces?
  • doctors predicted you’d remain in a vegetative state if you survived?
  • you had to relearn to swallow, talk, see, balance, think, walk, tie your shoes, etc.?
  • you had three surgeries to stop seeing double, then one and a half years of vision therapy?
  • you could never drive again?
  • your short-term memory continued to be frustratingly compromised?
  • you were still paying off more than a million dollars in medical bills, nine years after your crash and injuries (and after your insurance paid)?
