A hit-and-run motorcycle accident can turn your life upside down in a moment. A new book, “The Ride, the Rose and the Resurrection” relates the full effects of a serious accident, from the physical pain to the struggle against motorcycle insurance companies’ red tape.
David and Carole Steiler, of Marlette Michigan, were road warriors long before their accident. The couple enjoyed flying their vintage airplane and cruising in their classic Corvette. In 2006, David added a 1990 Harley-Davidson to their garage.
But the next year, the joy of the motorcycle rides came to a crashing end. A hit-and-run motorcycle accident sent them both to the emergency room and started a 9 year battle that changed their lives.
Before the accident, David Stieler had been the owner of an automotive repair business. But the crash left him and his wife disabled, unable to perform basic upkeep on their home, let along run a business.
Now David is making lemonade out of the lemons the hit-and-run driver handed his family. He has written “The Ride, the Rose, and the Resurrection,” a book takes readers along on their road to recovery. It describes the psychological, spiritual, and physical battles the couple went through. It also lays out the financial and motorcycle insurance challenges that came out of the accident. The author’s website describes the book:
“This memoir not only offers a true account of the battle between life and death but also shares stories of compassion and suspicion, companionship and abandonment, and religion and faith, in which forgiveness becomes the key to resurrection.”
Anyone who has been through a serious auto or motorcycle accident knows that the insurance company can cause as many problems as it solves. Insurance adjusters will fight your claim for ongoing therapeutic expenses or replacement services. They will make you go through doctors’ examinations to try to poke holes in your medical claims.
That’s a reality that Author David Steiler is far too familiar with. He told Broadway Book World:
“Various encounters over the years of recovery following the accident revealed a seriously flawed legal and insurance system driven by laws written by legislators with obvious connections to special interests in the no-fault insurance industry. . . . “Ours was a story that needed to be told on behalf of victims who have suffered through similar circumstances. . . . The underlying message is about the insurance bureaucracy and the legal side of such tragic situations that so often destroys people before their paid-for benefits are ever received.”
