The Financial Side Of Car Accidents

Car crash
Nobody likes the sense of chaos that takes over your life once you’ve been in a car crash. Imagine that you were driving peacefully on the road when suddenly, out of nowhere, a car appeared to the right and ran directly into your side. Despite your best efforts, you couldn’t avoid it. More importantly, you now sit in your car, seconds after the accident, feeling lost and confused. While you know that you should get in touch with your car insurance, and get the details of the other driver – that is, assuming that you can get out of the car, if you can’t then you will need to call an ambulance – but do you know what else happens after a car accident? Here is a little countdown of the financial implications of an accident, when it wasn’t your fault.

 You Might Lose Your Income

A car accident can have dramatic consequences. You can be seriously injured. An injury is likely to cause you to stay away from work during the recovery time. In some cases, you may not work again. In other words, an injury can lead to a loss of income. While this is something that can be addressed directly by a car insurance settlement, you will find that auto accident lawyers are more likely to help you to receive a sustainable compensation in such situations. More lawyers are also very understanding of your situation and are happy to visit you at home or hospital if you are indisposed. They understand how difficult and stressful things are for you and make sure that you receive the best possible compensation.

You Might Have Medical Bills


A car crash can cause a variety of serious injuries, and some of these may not even show. Most people have a tendency to suffer from shock after a road accident, which can make it difficult to identify possible injuries. Additionally, even if the injury has been identified, it is likely that you will have to pay for treatment before any settlement from the car insurance or your lawyer can be made. In the case of a personal injury, the treatments can be quite costly at first. In other words, you may find yourself generating debts as the result of a car crash.
You Might Need To Adjust Your Lifestyle
Depending on the gravity of the accident, you might need to adjust your lifestyle to cope with a new situation, such as the loss of a limb or chronic pain. Consequently, you might also need to plan home improvement works to ensure that your home is adjusted to your new needs. Imagine having to spend the rest of your life in a wheelchair. How can you change your house design to fit the chair? And how much will it cost?

You Might Need Help Coping Emotionally

A car accident is a traumatic event. While you may not realize it at first, you might develop a form of psychological disorde as the result of your crash. For some individuals, this can appear as anxiety attacks. Others will find that they are too nervous to sleep or that they have constant nightmares about the accident. Some people develop a high fear of losing control and find it extremely stressful to leave the house. In short, a car accident has emotional consequences that you will need to deal with. Often therapy is the best solution to make peace with your car again.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
