Support The Project Helping Our Family Put A Roof On Our Home
Eight years ago my financial situation changed dramatically. I was on my way to an appointment for my job. At the time I was the Director of Educational Partnerships for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company. While I was driving my company car cargo truck's back doors opened and a rimmed truck tire came out from the back of the truck and collided with my car. I had severely injured my back again. This injury forced me to retire from my job. I filed a worker's compensation claim but for the past 7 years, I have been unable to get any funds from the commission in Maryland for this accident. Since the operators of the cargo truck didn't stay at the scene of the accident. Once they saw that I had collided with the truck tire ejected from the back of their vehicle they left the scene of the accident. For the past 7 years, I have managed to provide for my family only because I had monies saved for my eventual retirement as well as a Social Security Disability check for permanent disability and a small retirement annuity check.
