So far everything they have done is by the books.
Stuff that they are entitled to do.

Apparently if I had the crash a month later I would be in a better position financially.
They actually now pay your wages equivalent as you go, in much the same way as workers compensation.

I asked them for some more money to survive on, and they gave me a whole heap of paperwork to fill out.
My solicitor said that given Im getting income protection money, it is unlikely they will pay any extra.

Had a chat to my bank manager. Wanted to see if I could get some type of overdraft going that could be run until the insurance company settled.
Unfortunately they cant do anything as they need to know that I have regular income.
If there is a chance that the income protection money runs out before I return to work, or a settlement is made, Im on my own.
If, as some have mentioned, I am unable to return to work, then I will be left with no option than to get onto Centrelink benefits.
I looked at that as an option while I waited for the income protection to kick in.
About 100 pages of forms to fill out, on top of the information they already have on me.
All to get money, which they will receive back in full once a settlement is made.

The whole system is crazy the way ot treats innocent victims of road crashes.

Maybe the new system they have in place will make it easier to survive.

Was thinking about talking to my solicitor more about it, but any minor question gets a response by mail on embossed paper.
Thinking he is charging me around 100 bucks for minor shit like that.

Hope he is worth what it will cost me in the end.

Cheers

Rob

Good on ya Rob, must admit you have a great attitude mate!
The coming treason trials will be an awesome event, with the banks, politicians and insurance companies drawn and quartered!
