Ok, so i was tee-boned by a 90 yr old lady on 01/2012, she is too old to drive and got her pedals messed up and flew across the highway and hit me while i was at speed @ 45mph.
Received a bunch of medical treatments for about 6 months post accident. I stopped because it felt like a scam and i was afraid of getting stuck with the rediculous billing. Came out to about $15k in medical thus far. So i have constant back/ neck pain. My doctor wrote a deposition saying that i will likely have pain to manage for life. I've been on hydrocodone for over a year now with variable doses according to pain. I work as an auto tech to make matters worse! I need my body to make money!!! My lame lawyer has managed to get a MAX settlement offer of $12k which net me $0.00..he's pushing me to settle, why???sorry guys but look at it in my shoes and tell me why i wouldn't think this whole process is a money making machine for everyone except the victim? respectfully look at it in my eyes: 1st on PIP, I guess the medical field can charge whatever they want. My PIP has their allowable payments and paid that, however the place's put a huge lien on my account, I still owe them $8k they say...Is that not a scam?? A chiropractor i went the day of the accident and saw for 2hrs just ONE TIME is submitting a bill for $1300, is this not a scam??? -they did the same thing as they would do for there new patient coupon for $99 --- still not a scam? The lawyer gets 1/3 plus costs for doing a bunch of paperwork to settle, which on a $12k settlement is over $4k .....Minus med bill's nets me (the victim) $0.00 and i have to take hydrocodone to work now... well super fair guys! Everybody does super well at sucking the whole settlement dry huh
