5 steps forward 10 steps back

Nick's medical injuries caused from a careless driver rear ending into his truck has severely affected his family. While on his way to work, completely stopped at a red light, a vehicle traveling at 50-60 mph slammed into the back of Nicks Yukon xl causing him to veere off into a ditch and crash into a tree. He had to be cut free and extracted from the totaled truck after being trapped from the extreme force of impact after the initial collision. Nick needed to be placed on a stretcher and taken by ambulance to the nearest emergency room. Meanwhile, the driver that caused the accident signed a waiver and walked away uninjured. The at fault drivers insurance company, which is some no name insurance, is giving him the run around and now Nick needs to hire a lawyer. Nick has been employed with the same company for well over 7 years and now has to take a medical leave causing Nick to struggle to provide for his family and 3 year old daughter. He now has no choice and must attempt to find rides for himself to and from doctors visits due to not having a vehcile. The life he was once able to provide is now gone.
Anyone willing to help would be beyond appreciatedespecially during his long recovery.
