I commonly read horror stories on here of people who have gotten into accidents and the it’s-not-my-fault attitude of the driver who actually caused the accident. However, I would like to point out that not all cases are like this.
A friend of mine was biking about a couple of weeks ago and was hit by a driver. At first the injuries seemed to be not that bad, however the next day, due to severe headaches, he was rushed back to the hospital and underwent emergency surgery to remove blood clots from his head. To shorten the story, the surgery was a great success, and the rate of recovery is absolutely amazing considering the dire condition he was in.
But that is not the point of this post. As soon as the driver was contacted and notified of my friend’s condition, the driver and his family did not say “It’s not my fault”, but instead came to the hospital and accepted all blame and profusely apologized for everything that happened. As well, the driver and his mother have been at the hospital during every single visitation and have completely taken care of all expenses that have been incurred as well as arranging travel arrangements for my friend’s family to come over to Taiwan to care for their son. And my friend is set up in what I guess could be called a VIP room, it is private, has a sofa, chairs, refrigerator, and they have also hired an around-the-clock caregiver to sit with him at all times. And even without the financial assistance, I personally would like to commend the family for their actions, in today’s societies all across the globe there seem to be few people like this any longer.
Therefore, while you can read and hear about numerous accidents where the party at fault takes no responsibility, please remember that not everyone is like this.There are still wonderful people out there.
