Thanks RICHW, you are right, i'm sometimes pushing myself too hard to get through this, but this is all I know at present.
I wish I could rest but until I get any confirmation of a single penny from all this i'm going to be living in extreme fear as at present i'm very close to being evicted from my home in London.
I am spending a lot of time at the other halfs in Cambridge as she is my rock in all this as is her younger son.
I feel bad as I have still not told her the full extent of the accident as I fear after helping her son through his test and getting him a bike she would have put a stop to it immediately.
I feel it's in her interest not to know yet as this would then scare her so much and her poor son would be punished for something he never did.
I mean in the sense she would not have let him ride a motorbike.
She does not know about the helicopter or the CPR and quite a few bits of the seriousness of it.
I haven't even let her see the smashed bike and said it had only a couple of broken panels.
As to the damage to my clothing, again, it has been hidden by me so she will never see it.
God if she suddenly got a Triumph and joined the forum then I'd be in worse trouble than any police force could give to me

I just got back to London and opened my mail.
Now i've got some explaining to do and humble pie to eat

My solicitor is phoning my other half, not me, to arrange a meeting with her and me together for the court proceedings.

Fate is weird, you temp it and it will bite you back.
I mean I've only just said I've kept the worst of the accident from my other half and now suddenly she is going to find out the full extent of what actually happened on the night in question.

I have the report and recommendations and actions which have to be put in place to help me.
It actually hurts to read and no wonder they want my licence from me if the report is anything to go by.
Summary bits i'll put up but this is all ongoing and still in the process. I will not be putting up personal stuff, only bits to allow you all to read for yourselves the extent of the accident and the long awaited help I thought was not coming. And to be honest, some of it I am still unaware of.

4. Summary

4.1 MR(me)who was very fit and active prior to the injury.

4.2 Accommodation and environment is not meeting his current needs and he seriously puts himself at risk every day by climbing up and down stairs to use the bathroom and toilet. He would like to move from London and the noise and bustle of such a large city.

4.3 He is in constant and sometimes extreme pain in his leg and hand/arm and is not recieving near enough help so is relying on medication alone.

4.4 His priority goal is to mobilise, be free of pain and return to work along with his outdoor hobbies and pursuits.

4.5 Mr (stealthmode666) is suffering from depression since the injury and has repeated to several people he would be better off shutting himself away from everyone until he is better. This is serious and needs immediate response.

4.6 Ms .....(the other half) is in need of support in order to assist her in caring for her friend/companion to maintain the quality of what I see is a very close friendship and deep love for one another. She has been taking annual leave to take Mr (me) back to/from hospital and his house in London.

5. Recommendations

5.1 (to personal to type here)

5.2 MR (me) would also benefit from further rehabilitation support to assist him to regain independence and confidence with daily activities in/around the home and access to local community.

5.3 Case management

5.3.1 I recommend that a case manager is instructed to coordinate and take responsibility for:

• Resourcing and assessing all relevant medical, rehabilitation and support services for (me), to include the services of an occupational therapist, neuropsychologist and physiotherapist.
• To arrange suitable accommodation with downstairs or level access bathroom for Mr (me) close to his friend.
• Identifying, engaging and supervising an independent support worker for Mr (me).
• Monitoring and reviewing the effectiveness of all interventions.
• Providing ongoing support and advice for MR (me) and his friend’s family.
• Providing comprehensive risk assessments.
• Providing monthly progress reports on case management activity.

5.4 Physiotherapy

5.4.1 I recommend the services of an independent physiotherapist following the index injuries which have been left for so long unattended which seems wrong at this stage and I will need to further research why this has been allowed to happen in such an extreme case considering the amount of immense and sometimes excruciating pain MR (me) is suffering.

5.5 Occupational therapy

5.5.1 Occupational therapy input is required to assist MR (me) to regain independence and confidence in daily activities in/around the home and the community. I recommend the services of an independent occupational therapist to provide a detailed report with recommendations for treatment/intervention.

5.6 Support worker

5.6.1 I recommend that a support worker is recruited to assist MR (me) to carry out exercises as per therapist’s guidelines and recommendations. The support worker will also accompany him in taking prescribed medication only and at proper times as set out by the instructions of said medication.

This is only some bits, i'll put more up another time as this alone has taken me hours just to type out and copy and paste.

I feel for you and hope this last bit is a glimmer of hope toward resolving the whole thing.

Reading from the start, it didn't sound like the off had caused you all that much damage. I'm not sure if you were simply downplaying it or if you hadn't fully realized the extent of you ongoing injuries at that time. I suspect a little of both.

Also at the early stages it looked like your insurance company was treating you very well. 'Great', I thought, 'finally an insurance company does what's right by their policy holder instead of trying to penny pinch'. Then things turned. Again, I hope the above post is the start of finally resolving this.

Your story is also a strong warning to anybody else not to settle quickly. Many times people simply don't know what long-term issues they have and too often insurance companies are eager to settle early. Perhaps if there is any silver lining in these long delays it's that you'll at least receive fuller compensation. Had you settled before realizing the long-term damage, you would likely have been unable to seek anything further.

Good luck, and let's hope things are quickly resolved from here!

When I put up more of the report it might become clear why I am having to hand in my licence for the time being.
I've posted just a bit of the summary and it makes for weird reading because quite simply I don't see it as me with so many problems as it details.
Wishing it was someone elses sent to me by mistake.

I thought it was just a case of shut-up and get on with it. I admit I am struggling with it and from what the report says it looks like I've not being doing things very well.
How was I to know when I had nothing to compare it to in the sense of what has really happened.
The amount of morphine i've had since the night in question has probably helped me deal with it a lot more than I knew but now the talk is to remove it from me before I become dependent on it.
Why is it that things you like are so bad for you?

Morphine is both good (pain relief) and bad (sooooo spaced). I spent 5 days on a morphine drip in hospital after a sports injury and it took 3 more days in hospital to ween me off of it.

fun 5 days though .... completely spaced!

On and off for almost 7 months is the problem, not 2 days
