Hello everyone, I hate that it's gotten to this point, but I'm trying everything I can and I'm pretty much desperate. Long story short, I'm stuck with an auto repair bill I can't pay and I need help.
In December of 2020, I was unfortunately injured at work and ended up with a torn labrum, and all the ligaments holding my acromioclavicular joint down separated. Dealing with workers compensation has been a waking nightmare. They delay my payments, which are paper checks because they don't offer direct deposit, currently I have not received a check in over 2 months, there is constant mismanagement of my case due to case managers coming and going, the waits for approval and appointments sometimes top 4 months, and just the utter neglect received from their assigned medical providers has made my life hell. With my child being due in May of 2021 I had no time to play their games so I sought private treatment and was able to get the necessary surgery to get my life back on track... or so I thought. I got the surgery in April of 2021, but it did not heal properly and I suffer from intense chronic pain. I have a lawyer and am currently doing everything I can to push my case forward but they haven't paid me in 2 months. My wife receives 1 monthly disability benefit check from the VA but it's not even enough to cover rent. We are 3 months behind in rent, and we don't qualify for any state or federal aid because her disability check puts us right over the threshold for National Level Poverty. Which is $800/month for a 3 person family. Now with our car situation, the only way I can pull myself forward and help get my family out of this situation, is if I continue to go to my doctors appointments and meetings with my lawyers etc, but our car is currently undrivable. I have a 2016 Ford Focus, it has a recall on the transmission and a warranty, but unfortunately that doesn't cover the gears or the fork actuators, only the transmission control module and the actual gear box. So I'm stuck with the repair bill. If there's anything you can do to help us out it would be greatly appreciated
