The injury occurred, by a fall 8-12 feet landing on the cement floor. No idea how long he was out, someone found him. No paramedics were called, he was driven to a clinic and left in a room for an hour. When I got to him, there was a very visible lump on his head, he was in massive pain and shaken. Finally, we were told to go to the emergency room, once there, a CT Scan showed, fractured head and he was transferred to a Trauma Hospital and admitted to the ICU. Along with the fractured skull, he has bleed on the brain, bruised brain, Frontal Lobe, Parietal Lobe, Temporal Lobe and Occipital Lobe, a fractured L5 and bulging of disk in the neck. They are saying his neck and back were injured before. He's never had an injury to either. He has memory loss (from day of accident to now, he forgets things from one day to the next), agitated, massive migraines, we can't sleep together, as he isn't comfortable unless he's half way sitting/sleeping in the recliner. Needless to say, this is taking a toll on our marriage, because there is no husband/wife relationship, as he isn't interested.
We're having a hard time getting him medicine and into Drs. because wc is taking their time. The Neuro he's been seeing wants him to see a Primary Care Dr and others. In all of this, we've also lost our insurance, because he is being paid through wc and not is work.
We have obtained an attorney, we aren't sure what else to do. No idea when and if he'll be able to return to work. We've made an appointment to apply for SSDI, as he was the only one working and we have a family.
Anyone have advice for me, I'm drowning here and emotionally, physically and mentally spent.
