To begin with - I have been at this for nearly a year, to no avail! And no one will help me in a legal way, which is pissing me off because ever since the (Dodge 1500) truck accident April 2, 2017 all us involved have been having major problems! My long time friend/caregiver (I have Cerebral Palsy) who was driving had broken is collar bone, was extremely bruised for 4 months, neck brace for six months. He still has problems. Oh! He had coverage but it was the bare minimum as it was all he could until he got paid. My nephew Jeremy who is 6 foot and really slim was a sleep in the back seat. He now has black-outs going down hill. As, for me, I got the worst of it, and Loma Linda and doctors who were responsible for my care as well as a few of the nurses treated me with less care, etc, because i have Cerebral Palsy and used a walke4!
Below is part th account in detail of what happen in its entirety! It was written in letter form for letters! However! the letter, is in parts as it’s quite long.
To whom this, ll Concern:
I was in a personal truck accident last April and ever since I've have been trying to find legal justice and I'm always told can't help or won't help you! Which is, unfair as I am a little person who was discriminated against because i have Cerebral Palsy and so i did not receive the proper care for my broken left (enclosed compound fracture) of my left leg! Which was never immobilized just because I have Cerebral Palsy! Yes, I walked with a walker but not good enough for them to correctly treat me! This is what the doctor and orthopedic at Loma Linda told me and my sister Nicole! —
Last April the truck my I was in a roll over, it rolled 4 times, I broke my left leg, it had an enclosed compound femur fracture! However, it was never immobilized in any way! The ortho said you need surgery but he replied (I refuse to do the surgery) as you have Cerebral Palsy and you don't need to have your leg (its 2 centimeters off) straightened, and you should learn to live with it as it is, and you may not walk again, either! So, just deal. I consider that, Denying Me, Discrimination, just because I have Cerebral Palsy! It's Wrong and against the human rights law, so I thought! Besides. Any Ambulatory (non-disabled) person with a broken leg would've had their leg straightened and immobilized in some way! So, why, is the orthopedic who (Refused/Denied Me) the wanted and needed surgery, Allowed to get away with this!? And so far he is... Why?
After seeing 4 other orthopedics who all agreed that had my (enclosed compound femur fracture) been improperly set/immobilized, the night of the accident, my left leg would have healed straight! And my (left) hip would have never had to compensate for the way I sat, do to the pain! Which means, my hip now is not staying in place so I now have to where a hip brace, forever, etc! Which makes my every day life 10,000 times harder as I now need much more help doing and moving - thus making - My Cerebral Palsy so much more difficult to life with! And The other orthopedics wouldn't help because I needed an ortho specialist which the forth orthopedic, referred me to, at Arrowhead Regional Medical Hospital!
Oh! He wanted to do the surgery but he wanted extra tests which took another 6 weeks with getting the referrals for everything so by the time I saw him, my leg had healed, but not straight! He said, he'd would have to rebreak my leg to straighten it and he didn't want to do that as I've been through enough this year, 2017, I spent it in bed. And I am still in bed!
