Hey guys! What’s up with you, Dorothea here again I wanted to inform you guys today about something that happened some 4 days ago At the time of making this video, I think I will post it a few days later maybe a week after this event happened at the time of posting this video. Whoever follows me on Instagram already knows because I posted on my stories exactly after everything happened well really, after I had gotten home, because at the time I was in a lot of shock I took a few notes here in my notebook because the subject that I am talking about today is about a car accident that I had 4 days ago, and the truth is that this car vocabulary isn’t my specialty in Portuguese I needed to look up a few words to obtain more of a vocabulary to talk about this subject. Last Tuesday I was coming home from Miami on the highway I was with Ben in the car and also Max We were almost at home, but still on the highway, I-95 This highway is really famous here because it is the main highway from Miami to the rest of Florida Really, you can take this highway all the way to Maine It is a highway that goes all along the East Coast of the US But in this area of South Florida especially there are always accidents there is always traffic, it is very dangerous But if you are careful then there won’t be a problem, just that there are a lot of accidents on this highway I wasn’t going so fast, I was going the speed limit but what happened? out of nowhere, my front right tire came loose and fell off out of nowhere, I don’t know it was like a scene in a movie it could’ve easily been an accident that involved another 10 cars with fatalities…ughh..I was thinking… …in the worst case…but thankfully, none of that happened with us because we were already on the right side of the road so it was more or less easy to pull over and thank goodness there was enough space to pull over, because there are a lot of parts of this highway that have concrete barriers where it wouldn’t have been possible, there wouldn’t have been enough of a shoulder to pull over but yes, we were able to pull over on the side of the highway and not stay in the middle of the highway you could feel whenever the tire came off, that it came off and went under the car because the car jumped up and then bounced off the breaks immediately stopped working so we slid for maybe 200 meters before the car came to a stop I was really afraid, but I don’t think Max felt anything because he was really chill during all of this there wasn’t a lot of loud crashing noises or physical shock No, it was simply that we fell to the side and we slid until we pulled over and the car stopped so Max was good I immediately called my insurance company so that they would send a tow truck to pick up the car it was impossible to put the tire back on because it was all broken especially after skidding this distance on the highway going so fast it did a lot of damage to the bottom of the car and we took an Uber home because there wasn’t enough space in the tow truck for everyone the car was towed to a local mechanic shop and I waited another 3 days until an insurance adjuster came to inspect my car, which was today I was hoping for, even praying that they would find more damage done to the car than what the car is worth because, how does it work here with car insurance… when you are in an accident that was not your fault which, for me in this case, it was not my fault how was I supposed to know that there was a problem with the tire? the person at fault is the last person to fix my tires which was 3 months ago, I bought all new tires so this person should have seen that there was a problem with the tire and he didn’t see it, or maybe the mechanic before it, I don’t know who it was I am innocent on the side of the insurance for this accident if the price of fixing the car exceeds the total market value which is a lower total price than what you paid for the car if this cost of fixing it is more than that value the insurance company will pay off the rest of your car loan which I have, I am paying monthly to have my car and will also pay you this amount you will receive a check for this amount which in my case, will be about 3 thousand dollars so I was praying that I would be without this debt and with another 3 thousand dollars to get another car..to, I dont know! Do a lot with 3 thousand dollars unfortunately today, this insurance adjuster came to check out my car and he found that the total value is almost the same as the price of the car, but a little bit less so, they aren’t going to pay me, but they are going to fix the car with all of the new parts that I am needing and in 3 days I am going to have my car back to use again it was really scary I don’t wish this upon anyone, but at the same time, I am so grateful that nothing worse happened because really, in this case, especially driving on the highway here in Miami, it is so dangerous I am not exaggerating when I say that there are so many accidents here this happens all the time because people here don’t know how to drive you can always see that they are on their phones that they are distracted that they aren’t paying attention to other cars it is a miracle that nothing worse happened I am grateful that everything worked out in the end and I am grateful to have my car insurance…I wish that things had happened a little bit different on the subject of my insurance but it’s all good. the most important thing is that we are good that we are healthy, that we aren’t hurt we are doing well. I simply wanted to talk with you guys and tell you what happened with me, with us I think these moments in life really serve to wake you up they make you remember that there are some things that are important in life and there are other things that really aren’t that important it is important to hug all of your loved ones as much as you can use your life to the absolutely fullest if there is something that you really want to do with your life that you are sure is your life purpose go running after this thing and don’t lose any more time thinking and dreaming of these things no, simply do it. because life is so short, to just go by like that, nothing and unfortunately, all of us are… whats the word in portuguese.. I didn’t plan on saying this word… we are all susceptible to an accident to something horrible happening this is the risk of being alive I hope this story inspired you to live in the moment to take advantage of your life and not wait any longer to thank the important people in your life and go accomplish your dreams, which are worth accomplishing I hope you guys liked this video you guys thank you so much for having watched it, follow me on Instagram @dorothea__v same name as my channel for all of the updates in my life take a look down below in the description box to see more things my membership, my podcast, my patreon if you want to be my patron a lot of stuff that I am doing, it is all in the description box and I will see you in my next video, bye kisses!
