The Mission Viejo/Saddleback Valley Elks Lodge is graciously helping 24-year-old Maya Oliver, who is in dire need of money for a prosthetic leg, according to an article in The Orange County Register.
Oliver suffered severe injuries in a Mission Viejo car accident last January. Her left leg had to be amputated from the knee down and what’s worse; Oliver does not have medical insurance.
We commend the Elks Lodge and other members of the Orange County community, including Rod Cuervo from Mission Prosthesis, who is donating his time to help Oliver with her prosthetic leg. We can only imagine what Oliver and her family must be going through at this time with mounting medical bills and little or no money to pay for them. At Bisnar Chase Personal Injury Attorneys, we have represented thousands of auto accident victims over the last 30 years. Some of them suffer minor to moderate injuries, others are hurt severely and suffer catastrophic injuries.
We have seen a number of clients struggle through the consequences of an auto accident. Not all of them have the necessary insurances, like auto, health, and medical, that may help offset the cost of a dangerous car crash. These situations are heart-breaking especially when the auto accident was not their fault and they were the victims of someone’s negligence. After a car accident, victims must deal with their physical injuries, medical expenses and loss of wages that result from time missed at work. We understand and can relate to what Oliver, and the rest of her family and friends must be going through, which is what prompted us to make a donation to the “Help Maya account” that her mother Janelle James has started.
Stories such as Oliver’s don’t get the media’s attention because they did not involve a fatality. Oliver’s mother, as we mentioned, is asking for more donations so her daughter can walk again with the help of a prosthetic leg. Those interested may send contributions to “The Help Maya account,” at Washington Mutual, 27752, Vista Del Lago in Mission Viejo.
