Can't wait to hear back from the OP.

I do feel however, that she has gotten more than enough advice, some of it overly dramatic and over blown for the situation.

Also, for the posters who say "I haven't read through every post, but here's my take..." Well, your advice has already been given and if you had taken the time to read, you would have seen that.

Really, she's done nothing wrong and really all we need to do now is wait and see what HR says to her.

If she gets fired, then she may not be able to pay you.

She also has children to support.

She isn't paying anything - her car insurance is. If she was covered during the incident losing her job now wouldn't really matter.

Frankly, I don't think the whole 'she has children to support' argument should mean squat to the OP. The doctor wasn't concerned about the repercussions of her actions towards the OP and her family and how it may have affected them... why should the OP worry about the doctor?

OP - you've done your part. The car is being fixed and the you do not have to come up with the deductible since she is at fault. You have nothing else to do in this matter. It can only cause as much stress as you let it from here on out. Hopefully everything went well in your meeting.

The doctor's insurer is picking up the tab, of course.

But I agree with you on the "she has children to support" BS. If you don't pay your creditors, your creditors will pursue a claim against you in court. If you don't pay a creditor's judgment, you are subject to enforcement proceedings -- including wage garnishments and luens against your bank accounts and/or real property. And no one will care if you have "chikdren to support".

As I said in my first post, the OP is free to consult an attorney. I'd never tell her not to if she thought she needed to talk to someone.

But what do you want that attorney to do for the OP? If I'm paying someone $450 an hour for their expertise, I kind of expect that I'll get some benefit from that expertise.

[QUOTE=Skywalker;48357902]I don't get all this at all.

Exactly. I feel really bad for OP because it's just a real inconvenience for anyone but add in being pregnant and it really stinks. However, the car will be fixed and he rest is out of OP's hands.

Exactly! Super awful situation for the OP and totally get being crazy upset... but the biggest concern was finding the money for the deductible to get the car fixed. That part has now been taken care of. Is the doctor's attitude irritating? Yeah. I'd been a bit annoyed at being accosted in the parking lot, but at this point the OP's problem is being resolved. Hopefully after this meeting with HR it's finished and the OP can go about her business as she was before.

Not this time anyway. The Doctor was obviously not paying attention. The car she hit could just as well have been a baby in a shopping cart. She needs to be taught that there are consequences to her actions.

And really ... it was a car accident. Happens, unfortunately, every day. It's why people have insurance. And it happened at work, which is why there are HR departments. All of these conspiracy theories swirling around regarding what the mean doctor and the skeevy HR department are going to try to do to the poor helpless pregnant woman who is being forced to drive a compact car ... Come on people. First-world problems.

See, I don't get that. The more people give me the same advice, the more likely I'm going to follow it. I think there is benefit in people giving the same advice and if they don't have time to read the entire post, I don't see the big deal. I know some others feel the same way you do, though.

When I talked about getting a lawyer it was not so she could sue the doctor for money. It was so she had someone who knows the law to represent her in any meetings. Like any company, they want to cover their rear end. I hope she doesn't sign anything w/out having someone look at it.

Hmmm

The FACT that she let it go and did not attempt to find you to work things out tells you a lot about her character. You say shes a doctor, i wouldnt want a doctor with that kind if ethics working on me or my family. I say do what you can to get her fired!!!!!

I would make sure the police were notified. It is a crime to damage a car and leave the scene. Doesn't matter if the parking lot is private. I would also suggest the defendant needs to learn a lesson. I seriously doubt if the camera didn't capture the accident that the "good" doctor would have come forward. OP make sure you keep a log of dates ,times, who you spoke to and what they said it may come in handy if they pressure you,
