Matthew BaileMedical and Legal Fund

I had a motorcycle accident in 1998.

It nearly burned my legs off. The wounds from the burns have not healed, even 15 years later, due to damage to my circulatory system in my legs as well.

The wounds and legs are in constant, severe pain.I also have issues with Liver Problems (as yet undiagnosed - see below), infections from the wounds on my legs, and PTSD from when I was younger and stupid, and wound up places where I had no business.

In 2013, I was studying at UCLA for degrees in Computational & Systems Biology and Cognitive Science (GPA: 3.49). I had to take time off due to both medical and financial reasons, hoping to work to raise money.

Because of this, I lost the insurance, and doctors I had from UCLA.

The doctors I wound up with have categorically refused to treat the pain in my legs, or to help me to deal with the other medical problems, even going as far as to lying about their refusal.

Due to the bureaucracy of MediCAL, getting a new doctor will take almost another year, given my situation.

I have been looking for a lawyer, to no avail, to help sort this out, and to keep me from suffering an even worse fate from the failing health of my legs.

I need help, as I am out of options, and cannot long endure the pain with which I live.
