I just wanted to vent and this is totally off topic.
It would all work temporary. But since she released me and we really needed the money to be reimbursed for all our expenses we had already spent, we settled. We settled for much less than I wanted to settle for.
Well it's been getting worse. The back pain. She finally sent me for a MRI once I told her the pain was now in my leg as well. Turns out I have 2 bulging discs and arthritis in my back. I can pretty much guarantee it's from the accident. Arthritis can be caused by "trauma to a joint". Yep. Well she now wants me to see a pain specialist so we can discuss my options. Well that's more injections and if that doesn't work, surgery.
My MRI bill just came in the mail and it was $1,800. My insurance is covering $600 of it since we have a deductible. If they knew it was related to the accident they may not cover any. I could cry. Well forget that, I am crying. We haven't even gotten to the expenses I will have from the specialist and god forbid I have to have surgery.
I knew I should not have settled. I knew, in the end, I should've went ahead and got a lawyer. But the truth is? We couldn't afford to wait any longer. Now we are screwed.
Vent over. If you made it this far then thank you.
