Injured and Insulted

I was involved in a rear-end collision in 2008 and have yet to settle my file for SAB’s. IME deemed me to have a serious, disabling permanent neck injury which could be seen and felt upon examination. At the same time this IME chose to threaten me verbally. This same IME threatened me in 2009 causing me to tape this 2014 session. The tape is deemed illegal and I have had 2 lawyers now who refuse to listen to it. I think the worst moment of this whole ordeal happened today when I got a statement from a 3rd lawyer hired to investigate the astronomical charges for services that I was now being sued for. The charges this lawyer disputed after he obtained the lawyer files were for terrible remarks made about myself, made by the lawyer’s representative while trying to negotiate a settlement back in 2010. The comments were unbelievable and just plain nasty and the legal representative told the insurer what she thought the claim was worth and should settle for. As you can imagine someone slamming down an injured auto accident victim isn’t going to ask for much. Can you imagine where your lawyer office themselves gives the insurer the fuel to burn down your claim? We are not always privileged to this information and today I have to wonder who is the worst offender, the IME, the insurer, or perhaps your own lawyer? It’s food for thought.  Nothing worse than having insult added to your injury. I’m unsure today what I will or can do about this behaviour that I am being forced to pay for. An auto accident victim is just that, a victim at any angle you look at it.
