Biography (Please tell us about yourself) Worked all my life ; then started getting paid for it from age 15 until injured May 16, 1996. Even though sports' injuries had followed me all through high school, a 25 ft. chain falling on me (crushing injury - neck, shoulder) finally has gotten the best of me...for now. I look forward to resuming work at some point within next 10-12 yrs. Currently awaiting neck, knee, and shoulder surgery; I am in a battle for permanent and total disability wages (Virginia Workers' Compensation) thru Cincinnati Insurance Co., the carrier. The original 500 wks. of compensation ran out in Dec. of '05. Hearings have been ongoing for almost 3 YEARS now. I won my case in '08, but Cincinnati Insurance has now won the appeal. I have to take it to the Appeals Court of VA, ASAP. There are a lot of wages at stake. Currently, I survive on SSI, Medicaid, and Foodstamps. This is better than the last three years where I have lived on "ZERO" income. I survived on the kindness and generosity of my son, my church, and my friends.
