    Yes, twice. When I was sixteen I was hit by a car and knocked off my bike. I was almost killed and bounced off the car three times before somersaulting on the ground. I don't remember any of it as I had blacked out. It was my fault. All I suffered was a bit of concussion, a cut arm which needed stiches and major muscle damage to my left leg which is actually a couple of millimetres shorter than my right leg. I had physio for six weeks and took me two and a half years to get back on a bike again. Apparently I was even revived in the back of the ambulance.

     

    The other time was in my mother's car in 1988. It happened right outside our house, somebody ran up the back of me. I was reversing, I was unhurt apart from a bit of whiplash. The incredible thing was is I was charged with negligent driving even though it wasn't my fault as the cop on duty knew the bloke who rear ended me. The charge was eventually dropped. The car was a write off and I was devastated as I loved that car and it was the car I drove when I first got my licence. I had only got my full licence a couple of weeks earlier.

    I was involved in a horrible crash when I was younger. My car swerved off the road and flipped a few times. I was happy that I was still alive, but I had to undergo some surgeries. After a while, I started having pains in my right elbow, and the doctors told me that it was from surgery that didn't go well after the accident. I immediately got a medical malpractice lawyer and made him solve the problem. I got another minor surgery, but I didn't have to pay for it.
