Where I’ve Been
December 16, 2012
Just a little note of explanation for my absence this weekend and perhaps, relatively speaking, in recent weeks. In between Graham and Emily’s deaths, I was stopped at a light on the way to work when a truck slammed into me, totaling my car. The other driver told the officer he had insurance and provided the name and phone number of a company I’d never heard of. I called that company the day of the accident and spoke to a man who represented himself as an adjuster. He talked with me about opening a claim, directed me on medical care and later advised me where to take my car for repairs. After it was determined my car was a total economic loss, the guy disappeared.
With the help of my own insurance agent, who has been great, we figured out the driver was uninsured and the guy who had been posing as an insurance adjuster was just an insurance salesman, apparently collaborating with the driver in a ruse to make me believe the driver was insured. Anyway, it’s been incredibly time consuming and difficult trying to sort all this out and it’s not over yet but this weekend I made it over the hump: I got a new car and my old one will be towed away tomorrow. There is still more to deal with but I feel like this represents a major development and I hope to be more present on the blog from here on out. I know many of you have become accustomed to daily posts and when they are lacking, you kindly express concern and I appreciate you. I don’t particularly like to post about myself but felt an explanation was in order. Thank you for your support.
