My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: Texas
My husband and i were in an auto accident that was not our fault. we don't have health insurance and couldn't find a doctor that would see us. we finally found a lawyer that finally got a doctor for us. i have a neck injury and my husband has a shoulder injury. we are unable to have surgery until we get a settlement. our lawyer made up promise that we would have surgery if he got us just enough money for the surgeries. we have lost about everything we have. we have had to pay the doctor upfront to see us plus the mri that we had. it has been nearly 2 years and nothing. they are trying to get our local hospital to reduce their bill ($32,000 for 2 ct scans). he doesnt want to take it to court because my husband had a felony conviction in 1983 and since the accident happened in a small town, the jury would rule for the one that hit us cause he is a "good ole hometown boy".
what do we do. we need help and fast.
