Woman Picked Up By Drunk Uber Driver | Know Who is Behind the Wheel

When you call a cab, or request an Uber, you are expecting a designated sober driver to pick you up and safely transport you to your destination. However, what happens if your driver arrives and suddenly you feel unsafe? You notice that they are swerving, seem to be nodding off or even get into a car accident due to intoxication?

driving blurred vision

About a year ago, Buzzfeed interviewed a woman that was picked up by a drunk Uber driver, “[..]the car crossed over a grass median, coming precariously close to the oncoming traffic lane[..].”

“Gallion’s Uber driver was arrested for driving while impaired [..], he had a blood alcohol level of 0.15 — nearly four times the .04 legal limit for commercial drivers.”

Make sure to be aware and on alert for any suspicious behavior. As the driver to pullover and drop you off in the nearest safe location. Text a friend to call the police or call them yourself if you feel unsafe. Although it should be a guarantee that your driver should arrive sober and fulfill their duties, you can never be too careful.

HIT BY A DRUNK DRIVER AT OVER 100 MPH AND ALIVE TO TELL
Karen Mertes, a Lieutenant Colonel in our United States Air Force, was driving the speed limit on the interstate when she was struck by a drunk driver traveling over 100 mph.  He had a blood alcohol level of nearly three times the legal limit.  Both vehicles were totaled.  Her axle snapped in half, with brakes and steering inoperative.  Karen made a futile attempt to regain control of her vehicle as her car slid sideways down the interstate, with cars in the remaining lanes traveling by her at highway speeds.  During these split seconds, as her life hung in the balance, Karen made a bargain and promised that if she were fortunate to survive, she would spend the rest of her life helping others.  This was the genesis for what has become Fulfill Your Destiny, Inc.  http://www.fulfillyourdestiny.org


FULFILL YOUR DESTINY

fulfill-your-destiny-tree-text1-262817_960x332Karen Mertes turned a life altering tragedy into a life purpose with her organization, Fulfill Your Destiny.  Karen is a Lieutenant Colonel (Ret) from our United States Air Force.  A car accident in 2007 when Karen’s car was struck by a drunk driver traveling over 100 mph was the genesis that led her to create the organization that helps people whose careers have been altered by injury or other unforeseen circumstances.

Karen uses an entrepreneurial business model that she’s overlaid onto a non-profit organization, raising money for Fulfill Your Destiny in 11 ways, 5 of which involve her offering a professional service or product for donation.  Karen is dedicated to enriching the lives of others by bringing business and community together.

Having designed this proven, successful non-profit organization, WEDU honored Karen and Fulfill Your Destiny in 2014 with their Be More Entrepreneurial C1 Bank Engaged Philanthropist Award.

*Attendees at presentations receive a complimentary take-away of 35 Leadership and Life Tips that are easy to implement for immediate, positive results.


CONVERSATIONS WITH MOM I NEVER HAD: MOM, MONEY AND ME**
Karen’s Mom passed away very suddenly from a massive heart attack.  Karen was the executor, personal representative and trustee.  Combing the internet for resources to help, Karen didn’t find all that she needed so she created two checklists:  What to Do When Learning of the Passing of a Loved One, and The Asset Map which helps you find the treasure in your business and personal life, map your assets, and prepare your family for financial freedom.

**As an added bonus, Karen provides each attendee with a checklist of everything that must be done on the day, and during the first week and month upon learning of the passing of a loved one.  Special Tips for Executors are included as well.


TRIUMPH THROUGH TRAGEDY


Karen Mertes sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) when she was hit by a drunk driver traveling over 100 mph.  The impact upon her head and brain were multiple G-forces.  Karen’s brain literally cracked and bled inside her skull.

Karen is living proof of how only one concussion can change a life forever.  During this collision, Karen suffered multiple brain bleeds that impacted her memory, cognitive executive functioning and personality.  In a split second, that drunk driver had pushed the reset button on her career, family relationships and upon her whole life.

Karen was no longer the same person as she was before the crash.  Karen saw a different person when she looked in the mirror.  Karen now openly shares these insights as a TBI survivor and inspires others by explaining how she made gallons of lemonade out of that big lemon!

How to Win Your Personal Injury Litigation

plaintiff-101-cover-audioWhen going through a personal injury litigation, it is hard to know who is to trust. But once you have your lawyer on retainer, it is extremely beneficial to be completely open with your attorney. Below is Takeaway #8 from the Amazon Best Seller, “Plaintiff 101″—

Takeaway #8

Do not keep any secrets from your lawyer. If something in your past may hurt your case, tell your lawyer first. In all probability, it’s not as bad as you think. Remember the lessons of history. It wasn’t the break-in that led to Richard Nixon’s downfall. It was the cover-up.

A lawsuit is a team effort between you and your law firm. To achieve a successful result, you must meet your responsibilities with your best efforts. Be open, honest and flexible throughout your case.
