Shamu, I spoke to a PI firm here in town first, but haven't hired anyone just yet.  The firm I spoke to is handling a PI case for a friend of mine who got wiped out on his bike by some lady who CA stopped a stop sign and ran into him and his SV650... :'(

Thanks, Jeff, I'm glad I'm ok too.  I'm actually hobbling around without my brace at this point and my knee feels better.   8)

Yeah I figured it'd be easier to go with someone a bit more local..good luck with everything though. Hopefully this guy gets what he deserves and you get a nice payout :headspin:

Yay, I finally heard back from the DA's office and they seem really nice and helpful so far. 

I also got my stitches out today, finally.  Unfortunately, since I received no discharge papers when I left the hospital last week, and no one told me when to come back to get them taken out, I didn't go back til today, 10 days after they were sewn in.  They were supposed to be out in 5 days. :banghead: :banghead:  I was a little dazed and tired when I left the hospital and I know I should have realized I had no paperwork, but I forgot, my bad.  Still sucks that they were in twice as long as they should have been and now it might scar up worse.

Hmm, well that coupled with my picking up a 20 dollar tube of Mederma makes me feel a little better, thanks, c_dubya!   ;D

Oh, scars....I have an 11 inch long scar on my left quadricep from crashing my scooter (wearing gear) at 25 mph a couple years ago.  I was kind bummed about it at first, but no one ever sees it and I don't have to look at it either unless I'm on the bicycle.  It doesn't really bother me at all today.  Hopefully I'll be less sensitive about this one in time too, but it's on my FACE and I've never had scars there before....I know it's a vain thing to say, but it pisses me off more because this was the result of something someone did to me, not just something stupid I did myself, like falling out of a tree or trying to climb a building or crashing my bicycle.....Argh, oh well.  Could have been a hell of a lot worse, right?!   :P

Chicks dig scars, huh?  That saying has always just kind of made me laugh.  I think of all mine as little stories about all the stuff I've done in my time...nothing more nothing less.  My skirt chasing days are done, but I guess it's always kind of fun to tell girls about the gruesome ways you got your scars, heh.

lol i got mine from having a fight with a shopping cart... and losing.

for some reason, the ones in my face don't bother me, but my new ones from my arthroscopic shoulder restabilization surgery bug the crap outta me.

and yes, chicks dig scars, but not so much skin grafts... so... ATGATT fellers.

Ack, I think my friend just had that same shoulder operation.  They balloon up your shoulder with fluid and go in through some incisions and do all the stuff by camera, yeah?  So weird.

He was arraigned on March 21st, I was not there for it though.  After that, there was supposed to be a pre-trial hearing, between his attorney, the deputy DA prosecuting the case on my behalf, and a judge.  I guess he waived his right to this, and the thing is going to go to trial...witness testimony and all that crap.  I believe there is a hearing in early May that I have to go to.  He is facing charges of reckless driving causing bodily injury, and assault with a deadly weapon other than a firearm, so he'll most likely do jailtime.  As for compensation, there is a fund in CA set up to pay victims of assault cases money to cover their expenses, up to like 5k.  I need to stat contacting all the medical places that are already hounding me for money, ha, jerks.  Any restitution he is ordered to pay goes back into this fund.  Apparently, neither officer who was on the scene got his insurance info, and he has yet to provide it.  I don't want to have to file a civil suit, but if he doesn't provide it voluntarily, I have to sue him, just to get the insurance info.... :-X :banghead:

It's still a huge PITA so far, BUT, I have been able to run a couple times, and I can walk like a normal person now, so it looks like there is no permanent damage to my knee.  Cool, huh?  Now I just have to go to that hearing in May and ask that dude to give me his insurance info so I don't have to sue him for it.... ???

Thanks guys.  Physically speaking, I'm more or less recovered.  The scars will take time obviously, but my knee seems to be ok, thank God.  The lgel side of things is...going, just takes forever.  Could be worse, I guess, ha.
