Fighting Against Hell

The last few days have been pretty stressful. Due to being in a crash which was not my fault (I was hit by a car while riding my trike {motorcycle} in September) and the fact that I am on a disability pension I am now being given major run around. The insurance company is owned & operated by the provincial government, and my disability pension comes from a different department of the provincial government. Of course, I can't go into it all here, but I am getting major hassle/harassment from both offices and I am getting very tired of it. I suffer from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) from being suddenly hit, flying trough the air, hitting a car with my body, bouncing off and landing on then sliding along the street downtown in our city and at some point during this sustaining injuries one of which has cost me partial use of my left hand. And yet these government agencies are both doing all they can to make my life a living hell. I am starting to think it is time to retain a lawyer. I had not planned to get a lawyer, or at least to wait and see how things panned out over the next year or two before I made that decision. Now it seems like I might just really need some legal advice, someone of power to stand up for me. It's a sad situation when our own government does it's best to harm the people that I believe they are supposed to be helping.

Yikes! I'm sorry to hear about your accident and even more sorry to hear that you're having so much trouble settling a claim. An attorney just might be the way to go. You need an advocate who understands how to talk red tape.

Best wishes for your recovery, both in health and in benefits you deserve as the injured party.
