I had a not at fault car accident 5 years ago. After the accident I went to hospital and they didn't do any x-rays, prescribed me some pills and sent me home.. i started to see a chiropractor for my stiff back. I was cut off treatment and told unless I go on disability they weren't paying anymore. In November 2015 I was on my way to work and a guy ran his red light and pulled a u-turn infront of me and he wrote off my car. I have been in treatment seeing a chiropractor and a massage therapist since the first week of December. I requested an MRI because I felt like something was off.. I went in April 2016 and i have 2 bulging discs and a herniated disc which is constantly pushing on my nerves and is hard for me to be as active as I use to be. My doctor recommended going to physio. I have insurance coverage through my work as well as my spouse and as such had to max both ours out before the new year and after my insurance company pays.. I also had a minor concussion, used a lot of sick time (not consecutively) and I work a desk job. The other guys insurance company keeps calling me to sign a release of my medical records and I called a lawyer who said I didn't have a case. I'm not sure how to proceed with his insurance company because I know they are going to try to put me through the ringer and I don't want to get stuck paying for all my treatments because I wasn't at fault. I had to replace my car ( just bought it 5 months previous), take time off work (using sick and vacation time), buy a new bed (for back support), now because I'm not as active due to lack of mobility I'm gaining weight, which isn't good for my spine either. With the concussion I had migraines. I feel constantly stiff. I just want my life back and need some advice. Thank You
If after the first accident you recovered and went back to work, and because of the 2015 accident you now have injuries that prevent you from working the same hours and duties as before this recent accident, then you definitely have a case. Call or email me at the contact info below and we can discuss in more detail so that you know all your options.
