Wondering if this is good karma. b, 21b, 21Driver wasn't looking and hit me on my motorcycle when he merged into my lane. I fell but most of the injury came from the motorcycle landing on my leg. Nothing broken but my leg hurts. Especially at night. Something about it resting horizontally which makes it hurt a lot so I'm not getting any sleep the last few nights. I missed a few days of work and this is actually the first day I've been back. Leg is swollen in spots and a lot of bruising.b, 21b, 21I was really just planning on getting money for my motorcycle which won't be more than $2000. However, my partner says I should get a personal injury lawyer. The reasoning being that you never know how these injuries might effect you in a few years. Generally I consider personal injury lawyers to be sleazy but he makes a good point and he's one of those people that believes greatly in karma and doing the right thing so I was kind of taken aback when he recommend this.b, 21b, 21The guy who hit me immediately pulled over and was very concerned. Admitted to hitting me. I'm waiting for the police report. He's a church going guy who actually said a prayer for me in the ambulance so he gets points for that.b, 21b, 21So what should I do? Chalk this up as part of life or get paid?
