15th September 2011, driving to work in my mk3 fiesta. next thing i know im being cut out of the car about 3 hours later. apparently a woman came out from a side road at approximately 60mph and hit me in my passenger door

 

car went from this:

saddens me greatly as the car had only done around 22k miles and was in perfect condition, i guarantee you the best mk3 you have ever seen (probably lol)

 

as a result of the accident i ended up with the following injuries:

- 4 breaks in my hip

- 4 broken ribs

- broken collar bone

- fractured shoulder blade

- broken arm

- nerve damage in lower back (its completely number i cant feel a thing, really anoying as it still gets itchy and i cant satisfy the itch lol)

- chipped tooth

and now im pretty much ok, i still get problems, as i said previously i cant feel my lower back at all, because of the extensive damage to my hip i kinda walk a bit funny and wear out my right shoe way quicker than my left one lol and my left arm has very little strength in it anymore

 

well thats my shunt! what do you think?

depends on what im doin as to what hurts more. its difficult to describe the feeling in my back as its like nothing i ever felt before. my shoulder and arm give me a fair amount of grief. specially when its cold. i dnt know what happened to the woman after the accident. i was too busy learning to walk again to really care! me getting comp? i wont give u the exact figure but lets just say its all tied up for a rainy day.......or when i make a mortgage application

im guessing it was the passenger seat that hit your pelvis not the sub box ,glad you are on the mend hopefully you will make a full recovery .made me think as my son had a fiesta and my grandson traveled in the front passenger seat on his booster seat .makes you think how unsafe cars can be :thumb:

im not sure what it was that crushed me and at the time i didnt really care lol all i know is if i had standard seats without any side bolsters, i would have taken the entire force of the impact rather than my beloved recaro! the sub was in that position as the pics were taken while the police holding centre man sorted through the car with my girlfriend to get anything useful from the wreck

 

no i will not update my sig! fiesta was my baby.......tears lol
