Donald had been injured years ago when a shotgun blast almost tore his right leg off. Because he had no medical insurance, Donald did not get proper care. When he came to our office on the referral of a friend, his leg was a massive open wound, draining and bleeding, wrapped in a dirty bandage. He said it had been that way for months. He had been to the ER a time or two and they bandaged the wound and gave him antibiotics. X-rays showed there was still buckshot pellets imbedded around the femur. Without money or insurance, Donald was not able to obtain the multiple surgeries he needed to possibly heal this wound and ease his suffering. We were able to arrange with a group of orthopedic surgeons to take Donald as a charity case and perform the surgeries needed to repair his leg. Over 3 months, Donald had 4 operations. In the meantime, we filed a Social Security disability application for him, arguing that he could not work due to his limited ability to sit, stand and walk. He also had a very limited education and no work skills. Today, Donald is receiving a small SSI check from Social Security, has his own apartment and instead of an amputation, his leg has healed and he is able to walk. Donald is in rehabilitation and may be able to work upon completion. The fee we earned on Donald's case was very small. However, the satisfaction we earned from helping him is immeasurable.
