I WISH TO GIVE A HEARTFELT THANK YOU TO THE MEN AND WOMEN OF THE THOREAU NEW MEXICO VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT FOR THEIR EXPEDITIOUS AND PROFESSIONAL  EFFORTS EXTRACTING ME FROM THE VEHICLE AND SAVING MY LIFE.

People,

 

I am back and recovering and wish to thank everyone who sent me their best wishes.

Here is what is left of my equipment, it took our brothers and sisters of the Thoreau New Mexico Volunteer Fire Department two hours to cut me out of this mess.

I experienced three broken ribs, a twelve inch to the bone laceration from just over my right eye in a high arch to just below and aft of my right ear, this took 2 medical tech's two hours to close using 600 stitches.  

I also had multiple fractures of my right hand and a broken neck that needed the above titanium plate installed to fuse the vertebrae to stop my spinal cord from being severed.

I am now living in my class A motor coach in a friends yard in Elm Creek Nebraska. I had put together a small shop building with all of my tools and life's possessions but it burned to the ground on May 2nd of 2014. I am just starting to feel I may have been better off if I had died in this wreck :-) 

Well, "quitters never win and winners never quit", so I will keep trying to go forward ! Nothing left to look back on now anyway :-) 

My wish for everyone is to take away from all of this a very important message : PLEASE DO NOT TEXT OR TALK OR IN ANY WAY BE DISTRACTED FROM DRIVING, BECAUSE "DRIVING IS A FULL TIME JOB"

Be well and safe everyone.

Respectfully,

Fireman Fritz

FLASH ***** dateline September 18 2015 Albuquerque New Mexico ******

I secured a judgement for a pain and suffering law suit in the amount of $980,488.44 ( see document attached).

Now the law firm of Thayer & Thayer in Grand Island Nebraska has decided not to try to locate the woman. I can not get him to act on it because he says the Tortfeasor can not be found.

I felt in this day in time with all the many government "tails" we all have on us, it would be easy to find anyone who was still alive so I feel he just lost interest in my case because I threatened to have his law license revoked for trying to give me an advance on the judgement while I waited for this to finally settle.

Apparently that is "lending money to clients" which it seems is against Nebraska laws. He got angry with my unwillingness to use the law as my "personal play thing" as he was doing, so he decided to cheat me out of the settlement I worked three years to get.

Anyone know a competent law firm in Nebraska who is not afraid of the "mighty Thayer family" who are all attorneys and bankers, that wants 33.3 % of this judgment feel free to call or e-mail me at fpkvd@hotmail.com or 308-708-1183

Thank you !

Update, June 2015.... I am able to almost work a light duty job. I had one for 9 months, but I fell on an ice covered parking lot and injured my good left wrist and shoulder, DAMN !

I guess I will just accept being on Social Security and live quietly out of sight and the minds of everyone. I truly wished to "stay in the game", but it seems it is just not in the cards.
