I was visiting the united States from Canada when I was hit by a car. outside SF Airport while walking inside a cross walk. This was a terrible, stressful event. I thought I broke my ankle couldn't walk. I ended up at SF General and had no traveller's insurance or health insurance in the United States. They x-rayed my ankle, said it wasn't broken and sent me huge bills, tens of thousands of dollars for one visit. The insurance for the car that hit me wouldn't pay anything and blamed the accident on me, claiming I was outside the crosswalk. I wasn't. I was scared, terrified. I am a single mother of 10 years and the bills sent by the SF hospital would have required me to sell my home or close down my business as a denturist, max out my credit and how would I survive. It would of been an awful scary setback for my life. As I am able to just make end every month and somehow was just keep it going while raising a small child. Even though separate by thousands of miles, Mr. Fetto took on my seemingly no win case. He was very approachable and easy to talk to. I was intimidated to talk to a lawyer. I had no clue what to do. Mr. Fetto suggested they conduct an MRI of my ankle and when they did they found that the ligaments in my ankle were torn and settled for a wonderful sum that got me money besides paying off my medical bills. I am very grateful for his help in putting this awful event in my past. I am on Facebook, or you can email me for a reference or text/call me.
