An Unfortunate Accident
An unfortunate car accident with a distracted driver. Jeremy Diamond, his team of personal injury lawyers, and emergency front-line workers helped me escape unscathed.
About 7 years I had the unfortunate pleasure of getting in to my first car accident. At the time, it was difficult not to panic, however, I learned from the incident and was left relatively unscathed. Wish I could say the same for the other party.
I was driving on the 400 series of highways in Ontario on a sunny, clear skies day and was unfortunately side swiped by another vehicle. I believe the person was driving drifted off while on their cell phone (something that is now illegal in the province of Ontario) and started heading toward my car. Being the ultra cautious person I am, I started pulling over towards the guard rail to avoid any chance of a collision. Unfortunately the driver drifted off, side swiped my car and we found both ourselves crashed into the guard rail.
I was panicked. I didn't know what to do. I mean, it's not everyday that you find yourself injured in a car accident. As a basketball fan, I have seasons tickets to the Toronto Raptors at the ACC. I constantly see Jeremy Diamond of Diamond & Diamond on the jumbotron and banners around the stadium. My first inclination is to call their number, the jingle has been stuck in my head for weeks.
I spoke to one of the directors, Sandra Zisckind, who told me to stay as calm as possible (not easy when my car is semi-destroyed) and advised not to speak to any witnesses or the other party and to keep my statement as brief as possible to police and front-line workers. I probably should have mentioned that I already called 9-1-1...
Anyways, I was able to escape the situation unscathed thanks to responsive front-line workers and advice from a jingle stuck in my head.
Wish I could say the same for the other guy.
