On July 26, 2013 while driving my work truck from St.Louis MO. to Chicago Illinois I blacked out @ the wheel near Pontiac Illinois and my truck ran off the right side of the road and rolled 2 3/4 times. I was taken to the emergency room in Pontiac and treated for a broken left clavicle and fractured pelvis, both of which were caused by my seat belt. I have since filed for worker's compensation and been denied, I really can't understand how they can deny my claim, but their excuse is "my injuries did not occur during the course of, or out of my employment". It's very hard to understand all the legal jargon involved, but needless to say I have been denied any compensation. Of course I have retained counsel to handle the insurance co., but in the mean time I am left with the financial burden of house payments and bills, not to mention trying to survive on a daily basis. Thinking that my Short term disability that I have through my employer would be able to help out was somewhat relieving, however, they will not accept my claim due to the fact the I was hurt on the job, go figure! Therefore, I am left with no means to put together any funds to pay my bills or survive.
I am currently attempting to sell off anything that I own that might be worth something to put the finances together to survive while I await the outcome of the work comp case which could take some time.
As as last ditch effort I am posting this on facebook to see if anybody out there at all would be willing to help. I don't expect huge donations or anything like that, but with over 600 friends on my friends list I thought it might be worth while to give it a try, so I am posting my address and asking that anybody that could/would send $1.00 to help out. If my friends sent just $1.00 I would be able to make my October house payment alone. and that would be a huge relief to know that I do not have to face a foreclosure on my home, it's not much, but it is home and I'd like to keep it.
As many of you know, I am a biker and have always been a big part of the biking community here in the St.Louis area. I have participated in many fund raisers and benefits over the years and always tried to help those in need when I can. I am really curious to see if all of my good deeds in the past are enough to help me out when I really need the help.
Anybody that would like to help may send just $1.00 and make a huge difference in my life right now.
I gratefully THANK anybody that can help in advance, and God Bless you!
