The settlement…

Today my mom got her settlement check in the mail. *claps* Let me tell you she was excited to actually receive any amount, but really we feel she was ripped off. The government took some out because they claimed that my mom had used some type of medical service 7 years ago and had my sister on it. It ended up costing her almost $7,000 out of her settlement money. We were very pissed because she used no such medical service, but how do you fight the government? (Sorry, but I’m being vague on for personal reasons.) Anyways, the lawyers get their fees, the government makes up lies and takes out there share and that leaves a little for my mom. Now don’t get me wrong, we are happy that she got anything, (We really thought we wouldn’t see anything for years) but my mom has to live the rest of her life with a condition brought on by a company and this money isn’t very much considering the damage it did to her. It feels like the lawyers are the ones who made out best. *sigh* :/
