The Check Came In- A Cardiac Nightmare in New York

The long-awaited check finally came in. It sat on my desk along with a cover letter saying “Here is your check.” I stared at it. It had a lot of zeros. Where it said “Pay to the order of,” it had my name there. It had my client’s name also on that line. That check represented the culmination of a long and hard-fought battle against a doctor and a hospital in the New York metropolitan area. I had seen checks of that size before, but that check was only partial payment for this case. I was looking for another check that my secretary told me was in my mail pile. Then, underneath that check, I saw another letter with another check for the same case. That’s the check I was looking for. That check was even bigger than the first. Much bigger. By a multiple of five. I couldn’t take my eyes off of it. It was from a different bank. On the line where it said “Pay to the order of,” my name was on that line too along with my clients. The amount took my breath away. I had never actually seen a check with that amount before. It was exciting. I couldn’t believe this day had come.
