On a sunny day, I was backing out of my friend's driveway as usual very cautiously and slowly. Instead, my car suddenly accelerated and hit a van parked on the street. The impact caused the rear bumper to fall off. Before I realized what had happened, my car started moving forward through the driveway and front lawn, and came to a full stop after hitting the corner of the neighbor's house. This was happening in front of my friend who came out of the house and wanted to see us off. She looked terrified. It was a harrowing moment of about 10 seconds that my wife and children in the back seat went through. Even though I was aware, there was no time for me to even think and put the gear in neutral. I received a careless driving charge from the local police. My vehicle was a total loss. We survived with minor scrapes, but was very shaken. I had read about sudden acceleration earlier, but never realized this could happen to anybody who, nonetheless, is a careful and responsible driver. Besides, who would want to be a careless driver in the neighborhood of a family friend? I was lucky not to have hit a child or another living being who could have been outside at that time. The van and the neighbor's house absorbed the impact and stopped my vehicle to go further. Mr. Kosaccitook my case, believed in me, and helped me through the case in determing veracity of the case and what options we had. After the report by an expert engineer was produced at the court, the judge dismissed the entire careless driving charge. Mr. Kosacci is a competent attorney, very open about the merits of the case, and looks only after the best interest of his client. I recommend him without any reservation in similar cases. The total expense to get through this incident was not miniscule, but it was well worth the cost. Wish another driver doesn't have to go through such accident. I would take his expert legal advice and representation again, if I ever need it. Thank you, Emanuel.
