    Sorry to hear of your belated accident. But, who was changing lanes and who hit whom? There is not enough specifics to make a determination that Martin is a bad company. They were not driving, and so who was at fault is unknown from your post. Depending on the rest of the story maybe you deserved to be fired, then again maybe not. "Wheres the beef" so to speak?

    All right driver, I'm very sorry that you had such a serious situation. But looking at your post, brings up a whole lot of doubts.

    First off, you have posted in the wrong forum, you should be in the bad company forum. Second, your post, which I will admit was probably made when you were under a lot of stress, is disjointed, has no punctuation so it is hard to decipher and is incomplete.

    I hope you were/are a better driver than this post would indicate.
     
    Lonesome and Black Knight Thank this.

    You are being sued because they have to name you in the suit, to be able to sue your employer.

    They don't really want your money, they want money from Marten.

    The lawyers representing Marten will probably contact you soon, and want you to co-operate, unless the accident was your fault, and they'll probably hope you vanish off the earth before the court date.

    It's so humorous how people quickly overreact.

    Yes need more facts for the incident.
    Smart money says, become a hostile witness against Marten. They screwed you, so screw back 10x's harder.

    Nope. It was posted elsewhere and moved to the bad company section.
