    I was involved in a serious car accident over the weekend. The car I bought 5 years ago to replace a totaled car for an accident that wasn’t my fault? Same situation..... I’m home and recovering and don’t know when I will be back to work.

    I am so sorry and hope you recover quickly. I had 3 accidents in the dark and ice during my last 10 yrs teaching. 2 were not my fault either. Please take the time you need to fully recoup. <3

    I'm so sorry to hear this. Saying prayers for healing and quick recovery, and just ease and grace with the process. My car was totaled by harsh rear end by a kid who attended a nearby school last fall. It took months of PT to get better.

    It sucks... I can’t drive until April 10th (orthodopedist says I’m ok). And I don’t have a car to drive.... I don’t have enough sick, personal, and sick bank days to use to cover the rest of the school year. I may use 25 days (that I have) or 50 days (don’t have enough). I guess it’ll all depend on how I feel after a month. At least I have a lawyer! ;)

    So sorry! I hope you're back on your feet sooner rather than later. Hopefully you'll get compensated fairly. You can replace a car but you can't replace you! My friend's sister was killed in a car accident last year and they think the person responsible was texting and driving so the family had to get a lawyer. Such an unnecessary tragedy.

    I do know you are in Arkansas, but most states I'm familiar with transition to Disability payments , probably paid for indirectly by the districts. Although it is never 100% of your salary, even getting what is similar to an unemployment check every week or pay period is better than no money coming in. You should ask HR about how that works where you are.

    Good to hear that you're OK.
    Last week I lost my brakes backing my classic car out of the garage after winter storage. For a second, I thought I had lost my mind and accidentally pushed in the clutch. Nope. It was the brakes going all the way to the floor! I'm so glad I fixed my emergency brake last year. I avoided smashing our van.

    I’m having my lawyer check into whether I qualify for Worker’s Compensation. I had just left a school event where I was working when the accident occurred. I also pay into Short-Term Disability. I know I can’t draw off both but I should be able to get something if I’m out for the rest of the year.

    The accident has really wiped all of my energy. I have good and bad moments. I don’t want to rush back into work and my brain is just mush. It has been ever since the wreck.

    I need to STOP texting and checking out my Twitter when stuck in a jam. It's become an addiction.

    No, no you don't actually. In fact, you should check it while going full glam 70 on the freeway.

    I don't know how else to respond to a post like that without sarcasm. But then again, that poster loves to troll others on here. *eyeroll*

    Pi-R-Squared I am very sorry to hear about your accident. I really do wish you a speedy recovery both physically and mentally as I know how taxing car accidents can be, emotionally.
