THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, I got hurt in a oilfield accident in April 2013 broke my tibia, fibula, crushed kneecap, broke pelvic, cracked pelvic, dislocated shoulder. Was released on Jan. 31 2014 by my dr. in the state of Oklahoma they can stop your work comp as soon as Doctor releases you. Filed for unemployment they denied had to appeal fought for six months until I got approved. Received till October till I was notified I exhausted my benefits. Still hadn’t received settlement finally get to have settlement negotiations they offer $80000.00, I decline two weeks later still no court date lawyer advises me that if I go to a trial I wouldn’t receive half that so at this point…. I’m tired and broken from the peasant they’ve made me become. I accept I only get 27,000 for after lawyer fees and back child support here I sit today disabled with no means of income and broke living off my mother who is 63 years old child support racking back up and the oilfield still receiving billions of dollars yearly. The accident wasn’t my fault by any means. I just want what I’m deserving of which I guarantee is more than this!!!
I feel for you bro, but you chose this path in life. Every decision we make guides us to who we become. You need to move forward and gain control of your life one day at a time… do not let someone else dictate your outcomes anymore.- nik
