Riding his motorcycle home late on a dark night in a rural area, one of my legal assistant’s friends hit and killed a cow! After watching a ballgame with his family he was lost in thought. Great night, great company the air was cool and the sky was filled with stars and … suddenly a cow…. He couldn’t swerve, couldn’t brake and now the cow was dead, the motorcycle was wrecked and his neck, ribs and back were sore.
Was he hurt more than he knew? Was he going to miss work? How quickly did he need to act? Whose fault was it? Who would have to pay? Would insurance be enough? Whose insurance?
Accidents happen. No one gets up, grabbing their first coffee, saying, “I’m going to hit a cow today.” Yours may be a car crash in wet weather, a slip-and-fall as you leave the dentist’s office. When your wandering cow leaves you with these questions you need to act quickly.
You’ve lost wages but your landlord or mortgage lender are interested in being paid. How is the ambulance bill getting paid? The hospital bill? Where is the money going to come from? Who is at fault? The questions keep coming and you don’t know where to turn.
