Traumatic Brain Injury & Whiplash … Not A Relevant History? A little while back I posted a piece about the Epstein Barr Virus potentially being a beginning point regarding chronic health issues and progressive dysfunction that I have battled for …
Just how do you wrap up a literal car crash of a decade, one that became more so of a beginning than an ending!?
Here I bring together the final wrap up of the compensation process from those three car accidents in seven years, and the stark realities of monetary compensation versus life changing injury that far outweighs any monetary value.
And as for my little man Rhys, who should never have had to endure the horrors of such a horrific car accident during 1995 at just two years of age … Let me tell you about the man he has become, where he has ended up in life and just how proud I am of his determination to become all he has.

However, that all changes after being involuntarily placed in an Accident Insurance Scheme like Work Cover … A system where legitimately injured patients are branded malingerers, liars and not only suspected of compensation fraud, but treated with contempt as if guilty, right from the start.
Tuesday the 13th of March 1990, I was a carefree 17 year old heading off to work for the day … What I never anticipated that morning as I left home for work, was that the plan I had mapped out for the adult life I was just beginning to step into, would be unexpectedly re-written by fate alone.
