Today was a life changing day for myself and my family.

I was not going to post anything about it but, I just cant stand it.. In Aug of 98 I was attempting to start a personal watercraft, and the thing exploded....The blast broke my back, L1 burst fracture, and completely dislocated my left knee. Anyway, the cause of the explosion was determined to be a spark plug that vibrated out of the cylinder head, thus causing the cavity of the craft to be filled with air/fuel mixture. All I did was push the start button, and next thing you know I'm flying through the air. The craft had just been picked up from the repair shop.

Today, through mediation, I reached a settlement agreement with the Insurance carrier of the repair shop.
I Never filed suit although I did retain a lawyer. It still has not sunk in yet first thing I did was structure annuitys(sp?) for my two sons projected college tuitions (sons are 6 and eight.)

Guys...I'm freaked out!...Sorry for the personal post....Joe

It's good to see that it's working out for you Joe. I never knew that you had been injured before, so I don't think one post about it hurts anything.

Well, you looked pretty good at the Mariners ballgame. I'd have never guessed you had those injuries. I guess things are looking up, though. Congrats on the settlement. I hope you got your just due - nothing more, nothing less. I also admire the fact that you didn't sue them - this culture's downfall will be the lawyers....

Don't be freaked out, be happy that you can put that event behind you. I'm glad you retained a lawyer and reached a settlement. I hope you've recovered fully...

Joe,
For many of us, we feel that we've found a group of friends, when all we set out to do was find news about the Chiefs and football. So, we've come to expect to hear about these kind of personal things. I'm glad it worked out for you, nd that you could share the news with us.
BTW, got a couple of bucks I can borrow. [img]http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif[/img]

Phil, physically i feel fine, thats the weird thing I looked at my X-rays again today and wondered why I wasn't still in pain.
My back is doing fairly well, I actually returned to work after I got that **** clamshell brace off. I went nuts when I was laid up for 8 months. But I am proud that I did not have to file suit, we actually settled it like grownups! [img]http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif[/img] they accepted liability and we just came to an agreement...amazed that that can still actually happen....Joe

AZChief, I had no idea you were an attorney and I trust you understand it's nothing personal. I have had nothing but poor experiences with lawyers. I guess I shouldn't generalize like that though....

AZ, I took my time and chose a lawyer that is well respected defending insurance companies...He knew their every move. [img]http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif[/img]

Trust me, I take no offense. I run into more idiot attorneys than anybody and I know society loves to bash us all. I totally understand and agree with you in many cases!

I'm just sittin' back lookin' to reply to posts and that seemed like a natural one! [img]http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif[/img]

Wew - I'm glad I hadn't already offended someone 20 minutes into the day. Have you ever seen anyone backpedal that quickly? Oh, wait - I guess you probably have to correspond with lawyers as well....

You probably should have let me think you were pissed 'cuz now I'm going to give you grief. [img]http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/biggrin.gif[/img]

I'd expect nothing less. I'm usually pretty low profile about my profession on these boards but who cares. I think a couple other people know because of some athletes that got in trouble out here during spring training...

I remember discussing the Al Martin multiple marriages, Mario Bates domestic violence problem, etc. etc. etc.

You're cool w/ me AZ! I've found that lawyers that defend the creeps usually are trying to get my money any way they can. The lawyers that are embarassed to be associated with the rest of the slime are generally the standup ones. I have a 2nd cousin that falls into the latter catergory.

I have not told co-workers or friends and only
certain family members about the settlement, I feel safe talking to you guys about it, however milkman already tried to hit me up for some bucks [img]http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif[/img] I usually dont post personal stuff, but I am more than a little excited/elated/relieved/happy/freaked out.

AZ, thanks for your kind words, you sound exactly like my attorney [img]http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif[/img]

BTW, my knee surgery acl/lcl/mcl/pcl was a good result, and so far my back is holding up just fine. Again, sorry for the personal stuff.

Congrats. I don't want any $$, from what it sounds like you deserved it. However, when we hook up, I'll expect a fine cigar. [img]http://www.ChiefsPlanet.com/ubb/smile.gif[/img]
