Here is the second part of Jim's car accident experience. Jim Heneghan is an attorney at our law firm who learned firsthand what many of our clients go through after being injured in an accident. Attorney Jim Heneghan: My Car Accident, Part I.
"I finally got my wife on the line, and when she came to the scene she became extremely emotional. I was trying to assure her that I was ok, but the pain in my back was getting worse, so I was taken to the hospital. I thought I would be in and out of the ER with a couple of pain killers and muscle relaxers, but boy was I in for a surprise. The image studies showed I fractured a vertebra, and I was admitted into the hospital for the next few days.
I wasn't able to return to work until the end of the week, but even then it was excruciating to simply sit at my desk and do my job. I began to think about the fact that if going back to work at a desk job was so painful, I couldn't imagine what somebody would do if they had a more physical job."
Part III of Jim's story will be up on Friday. Check back then for the conclusion.
