My whole family went down to Florida for Labor Day to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday. We rented a huge house in Kissimmee for all of (18) of us to stay. We had the time of our lives. Fast forward to the trip home. We (Wife, 2 kids, and myself) stopped at the McDonalds in Tifton, GA for a quick bathroom/lunch break. Im in the drive thru line waiting for the car in front of me to receive their food so I can pull up to the window. After a good 4hrs in the car, my girls were getting a little ornery. I looked back to get them to settle down and my foot slipped off the brake and I hit the car in front of me. After explaining to her what happened, I asked her what she felt like we needed to do since there was no damage or anything. She said she ned to call her insurance company. No problem, i'll call mine as well. Before I get off the phone with my inusurance agent, a police officer shows up. She called them instead of her agent. After explaning to him what happened, he issues a case number to follow up on, but no ticket was given. I followed up on the case weekly, nothing ever came about it. Today, I receive a call from my insurance agent that the lady has hired an attorney and is claming injuries and has already been seeing an orthopedic!!!!! Keep in mind, we were in the drive thru line. I was 2-3' behind her. I couldn't have been going more than 1MPH. She has zero damage to her back bumper, I have zero damage to my front bumber. I do have 2 small dents on the outside of the front bumber from the previous owner. I understand she may have had a previous injuries, but there is noway on gods green earth did the impact of that 1MPH bump make you feel worse. Mean people suck, dont be one!!!
