John was out on a delivery when a car wasn't paying attention and BAM, hit him right in the legs kicking his head up to the windshield.

Hmmm... After evaluation, he is paralyzed waist down, has a broken wrist, and a minor head injury.
Emily: Welcome home dad, how are you feeling? John: Well i've been better Emily: Well don't worry financially! The person who hit you is paying for the medical expenses and we got a report from the government that you might wanna check out.

John: I don't know what we'd do without these food stamps. Their really helping us financially! Emily: Yeah these and the Medicaid covering physical therapy are really saving us. I would have to drop out of college and work if we didn't have it.
Doctor: Well John, after 2 1/2 years of physical therapy, I'm happy to tell you that you are now able to walk with partial feeling in your legs and can go back to work on a working from home condition until further improvement. John: Oh wow that's great to hear!
