I am attempting to claim from the Road Accident Fund though, but it could take up to 7 years, IF they even entertain my claim..
What's important is not what happens to us, but how we react to what happens to us..
God gave us two ends, one to think with, n one to sit on.. Success depends on which one u use.. Heads you win, tails u lose..

How do you sue the minibus taxi that forced you to swerve off the road to avoid a head on when 1) you can't remember the actual accident and only have what you can piece together from flashbacks, witnesses, and educated guesses;
That was basically why my lawsuit was unsuccessful.

We looked into suing the ER doctor who at first dismissed my syptoms and accused me of being a drug seeker, however the lawyers we spoke to felt that every doctor involved along the way would have to be incuded in the suit, and wasn't willing to do this, so we didn't sue.
Respect to you Sandy, it would be a shame to hold people accountable who were not responsible for the incorrect diagnosis or dismissal of your symptoms when obviously it was more the case of the ER doctor being the problem. It is sad that you were treated like a 'drug seeker' when you had a genuine medical problem that deserved attention.

And left the seen of the accident, and then the cops either did'nt look for him
or did'nt care to be bothered, but I had no one to sue.
But then again my EX-in-laws tried to sue me over it...
The Life Insurance company investigated me, like I killed my Wife, and ended up like this.
YEP, that was the plan...
