I was in an motorcycle accident in Feb. A lady turned (on a flashing yellow arrow) in front of me as I rode through an intersection and I hit the passenger rear quarterpanel of her suv. At the scene I felt minor injuries, bruised/scrapped left hip and arm. I ached quite a bit but nothing broken. Went to DR next day w/back and shoulder pain, then to an ortho 10 days later w/neck "twinge", been going regularly for treatment, had MRI in June showing herniated disc between C4/C5 in my neck... DR wants to fuse C4/C5 to stop the numbness I'm getting and pain in my left arm/hand!
Until the MRI, I was handling this on my own as it seemed minor but what now? The surgery is MINIMUM $25k plus rehab/follow-ups and possible future surgeries!Maybe important details: Lady immediately admitted fault to me, witness, police officer, and was ticketed. I've settled the personal property claim but have not done anything on the injury portion other than sign a medical information release form so her policies medical payments coverage may pay my medical bills, which didn't help because the dr's office I'm using won't take it!
