NRMA Insurance: a drunk driver left me without an arm and brain injury - please end the 4 year delay on my claim

This petition made change with 43,090 supporters!

I’ve just got news that I’ve won my petition and my case is settled. But here’s another petition on to NRMA Insurance in case you want to support them – I feel that everyone’s support for my petition saved me years of delays and pain: 


I was hit by a drunk driver while getting something out of the boot of a work car. My left arm was crushed and amputated, and I was left with a mild brain injury – yet NRMA Insurance have delayed my claim for the last 4 years.

The accident has devastated my life, and changed forever my family in every way. I live in pain that can be totally debilitating.

The drunk driver went to jail, and her insurer NRMA Insurance accepted "full liability"at the time. But for the last 4 years both the NRMA and their lawyers have been fighting paying a "reasonable" amount for the claim. Their people are now trying to say I should take cheaper prosthetic arms that don't work as well.

I wish more than anything that the accident didn't happen and I still had my arm and the life I once had with my family. I've lost my independence, even relying on my wife to tie up my shoelaces. Now I have countless doctors appointments, who say I'll most probably live with chronic pain my entire life. It's a terribly daunting thought.

Every day that NRMA delay, more legal fees stack up. We've been forced into so much debt to our lawyers that it makes me feel sick even thinking about it. It feels like they're just trying to delay so long that we break and give up.

All I want is for this to be over so that I can try to be the best husband and father that I can possibly be. Please, NRMA – settle my claim, allow me decent prosthetics and allow me to have some closure on this.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please send this petition to as many people as possible or let them know about it. Every person that signs it will help me and my family move towards settling my claim and putting the legal part of the accident behind us.
