Kurt's Expenses from car accident

On Friday, October 20th, 2017 Kurt Petersen was on his way to his job site in Waukesha for Intren, when another driver heading the opposite direction fell asleep behind the wheel and crashed into Kurt’s car. The accident was so significant that Kurt was pinned in the vehicle, well the jaws-of-life worked for almost an hour to free him.  Kurt was sent via Flight for Life to Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee, WI due to internal bleeding.
The extent of his injuries include: fractured left shoulder blade, multiple fractured ribs (on the left side) which punctured his left lung causing it to collapse, scattered left femur, knee cap, tibia, and ankle. Kurt’s internal bleeding (which required 10 units of blood) was the result from his broken pelvis.  
Since the accident Kurt has remained in ICU and on a ventilator. He has already undergone 3 surgeries and is expected to undergo multiple more. Kurt’s recovery is going to be very long and intense due to the injuries that he suffered; along with the excessive amount of therapy that will be required for him to regain strength and abilities.

Kurt has a heart of gold. He is always willing to help anyone with anything and you will never hear him complain. Kurt is the sole provider for his family and is a very hard worker. Kurt is a joy to be around and has a great sense of humor. Anyone that knows Kurt will state what a fun, loving, and hard worker he is. Kurt loves his family and spending time with them and he also loves his job with Intren and the people he works with. Kurt takes great pride in his work with the company.
