The holidays can bring us as much joy as they do stress. Now is the time we don our masks to pick out the right table dressings for the family dinner. We may venture to a store here and there for that perfect gift because Amazon can’t deliver it in time. We send packages in place of ourselves to family members and hope to be there next year.
Nevertheless, while our groceries are in the back and presents tucked safely under the dry cleaning, no amount of social distancing and mask-wearing can protect us from a car accident.
What do you do when you find yourself dazed in the middle of the road, covered in glass, your holiday trimmings and presents shattered all around? What do you do when you watch the truck that hit you speed off?
