thanks everyone

re: other he didn't back up.. .I never saw him.  I cant see any other explanation. Anyways we have 'No-Fault' insurance here. Provincial Government does not want the courts full of auto accident lawsuits ...

I'd like to add to the bouquet of well wishes and prayers for you and your daughter Robert!  May you both have a FULL recovery from this ordeal.  And no apologies are necessary Robert.  You have as always been a gentleman and a scholar here as far as I can tell.  8-)

I would love to hear if any justice was served concerning the "other guy" who hit you.  It makes me angry to hear about this because one of the "many" pet peeves I have with careless drivers is people who don't properly take care and fully observe when backing up.  Ugh!

Again, may God bless you and your daughter with a full recovery and blessings during the healing process as well!

Let me add to the chorus for a quick recovery, Robert!  So sorry to hear about the accident, but it sounds like it could have been much worse.  Glad your daughter wasn't hurt.  My best wishes to both of you!

Hi Robert

Wishing you a full speedy recovery, and hope the daughter is over the shock of the accident.

All the best.

Sorry to hear about this Robert. Wishing you a speedy recovery, and all the best.

Hope your MRI shows no problems and you continue to a full recovery Robert, and that your daughter isn't affected negatively in any way.
Comment by Ron Khoo on September 17, 2015 at 7:11pm
Sorry about the accident but no major injury is good. Get well.
Comment by Jud Hair on September 17, 2015 at 6:54pm

Wow Robert! So sorry to hear about your misfortune.  Hang in there!

Comment by Robert Williamson on September 17, 2015 at 5:29pm

what i have not spoken of is what happened 3 wed's ago.

After driving my brand new car for 3 weeks, a car with a trailer hitch bike rack full of bikes backed out of a side street into my right front wheel as i drove by on highway service road. The result was an almost BenHur chariot race disaster. The tire blew out and rim was twisted out of shape.

My daughter was in back seat and upset but unhurt. She was a trooper, came with me in ambulance, stayed with me in emergency room. (she's down syndrome and cannot speak)

Myself, i was in shock and had a possible TIA. Cat scan said no though, doc suspects pinched nerve in neck. Have an MRI coming up to check. One offshoot is the neuropathy in my right hand has increased. Grip strength in left reduced ( cant play the 12 :( Right hand speed doesn't seem to be affected, but accuracy is.

I got a 2 week no drive order (in case) so I did bother taking an insurance rental. As it was the car was in body shop 3 weeks. Got it wed. $4000 in repairs. But I'm still reluctant to drive. I keep going to the side door to check if car is still there...I  might be a bit more OCD now. :)

I hope this explains any wierdness i may have been in last month.
