Well today I can honestly say I have been through a nightmare that would surpass hard labor childbirth. I was rear ended as I was exiting off the interstate coming home from work on June 27, 2011. This day changed my life forever. It has been 2 1/2 years since that day and I have over $35,000 in medical bills treating my soft tissue injuries. At the time of the accident, I was having some immune system disorder problems that I had been dealing with and seeking treatment for and was put on an immunosuppressive drug to try to help with the symptoms I was having. After physical therapy, chiropractic, 3 cervical spinal epidurals, I was still in chronic pain. My immune system problem was finally diagnosed as rheumatoid arthritis that had already started attacking my internal organs and caused abcesses resulting in two emergency abdominal surgeries just three months after the car accident. So here I am today, 1/31/14 and I am waiting on a referral to a surgeon who will operate on me to attempt to correct my neck injuries sustained in the car accident without being off of my immunosuppressive drug for a long period. The mediation today to try to settle my case was just unbelievable. The lady who hit me had an insurance policy with a $50,000 limit. In negotiations, my attorney was unsuccessful with demand letters for the $50,000. Today I was offered $22,000, then, $26,000, then, $30,000. I did not accept and could not believe that after 2 1/2 years of pain and suffering, my credit completely ruined from all the medical bills that I would be put in a position of feeling like I was in a boxing match and getting pounded. None of this was my fault, the lady who hit me was ticketed and has paid her fine and now her insurance company is fighting me in the most outrageous way. Is it normal for insurance companies to do this to accident victims with injuries? I am totally in shock and disbelief as to what I have been through and it is not over yet. It seems like it would be very cut and dry. She hit me. I have documented injuries that still have not been corrected and not sure if they ever will be. She was clearly at fault, but yet I am having to fight and get beat down by her big insurance company because they think they can wear me down. There should be a law against this type of unethical behavior by her insurance company. Accident in GA. Any suggestions?
