On March 21st of 2016 Jason was in a horrific motorcycle accident while on his way home from work. He was stopped at a stoplight when a careless driver t boned him from the other direction. Jason sustained injuries to his leg, hip, knee, head, and eye. Even though he was wearing all the correct protective gear. His handlebars went through his visor and fractured the ocular socket in two places. His femur was shattered and twisted, his knee was shattered as was his lower leg. His big toe was essentially ripped off.
Jason had a rod placed in his hip to his knee, plates and screws to rebuild his knee, a double fasciotomy on his left leg. And his big toe was amputated. About a year later Jason developed a life threatening infection and had to have the hardware in his left leg removed. There were several complications with the surgery and Jason almost died 3 times and wound up on dialysis. While it was temporary his kidneys took a hit.
Jason then underwent an above the knee left leg amputation.
All this to say that the kid that hit him had state minimum coverage which barely covered the first couple of days in the hospital. This is what our lawyers described as a catastrophic loss. While our insurance has been gracious enough to cover us, the amount of copay and bills and medicines are astronomical. We can no longer afford the medicine and now we have to get a prosthetic. Not to mention seeking psychiatric help for both Jason and his family.
This is something that they are not comfortable asking help with,however they truly are in need of your help. Every little bit helps. God bless
