A North Dakota man found himself in a bad situation when coming over ridge hauling asphalt, only to find two other co-workers standing besides their trucks on a one lane bridge. When trying to slow and pull in behind, air brake canister explodes. With few options he realizes that his 50,000 Lbs. truck will surely kill anyone on the bridge, and steers his truck into the embankment. His truck sheers of top of embankment, and ends up in river. Although badly bruised he seems relitively unscathed.   It isn't until four years later that it's apparent he wasn't as lucky as he thought.

Turns out he shattered the cartilege in knee and spine. The knee is so bad it requires surgery, unfortunatly the hospital won't treat the injury since being bedridden the workman's compensation insurance has expired. being a veteran is able to use veterans benifits to have an operation. In the mean time his wife leaves him, with his child. Then he's diagnosed with a spinal diease, this again leaves him with long peroids of being bedridden. Now being disabled he incurrs a huge amount of interest on his child support obligation.

The federal Government deems him eligable for S.S.I. payments, and compensates North Dakota child support enforcement unit 35% of these payments. After his youngest child turned 18 yrs. old federal government no longer will compensate. The State of North Dakota, with no disabilty exception feels they have no other choice but to create a hardship for the disabled. They offer a solution of private attorney, but take away the means for veteran to obtain legal council. It seems the state has quite a scam against the disabled by after knowing these people have little chance of changeing their situation should pay double or triple their child support obligation. 

why should they feel they need to take  70% of someones total income. Have they asked themselves how someone could live on that amount. After talking to a case worker at the enforcment agency I was informed that it's against North Dakota state law to take over 50% of someone's income. Is that true, if so how can they get away with that. Who's watching the watchers. I felt it was crazy tha I was repeatedly thrown into jail when they knew I couldn't walk. I was led to believe there was no debtors prison, have we reverted to the dark ages when someones children can be taught to hate them for finanical reasons.

You might think that being disabled at work and being bedridden from an injury at work should earn a free ticket to the slammer I don't.

AUTHOR: captiank9 - (United States of America)

I think it's laughable at best how a disabled veteran could slam someone for offering to die for their country. Just because he saved two people from certian death and it wasn't in a war zone. I'm proud of being a veteran , and if I hadn't I wouldn't have been able to have that operation. The just of my situation isn't that I haven't paid child support, Ive been paying for thirty years. the problem is that disabled people pay more because their disabled because of the interest their forced to pay because of their injury. Maybe you should stay off the painkillers and pay attention. Instead of following the crowd and declaring war on the poor, and thinking men are all deadbeats or deadbeat dads.

Your story makes no sense.

Number 1, this has nothing to do with you being a veteran so drop that story right now. Second you owe child support, bottom line and you are expected to pay. Guess what I too am disabled, a combat disabled veteran and I work and pay my bills. Yes they are going to garnish you and will garnish you until you have paid in full. While I have sympathy for your accident there is no excuse for not paying your bills. If you fail to pay child support they put you in jail as they should. This is not a big government mystery, they are not out to get you, they are simply making sure you pay your fair share. Guess what blaming everyone else and not accepting part of the blame is your problem.  You have to share some of blame in this, perhaps life will get better if you do. As a serviceman you were taught to pick yourself up when you are down. Straighten up and get on with your life and stop blaming everyone else for your misgivings. This has nothing to do with you being a veteran get off that horse. You are shaming your fellow brothers and sisters. 

P.S. Karl, shut up, your rants and raves are completely idiotic.

Feel free to 'Google' the following six videos and documentaries and watch them on the web in order to understand who ultimately controls the U.S. Government, Wall Street, and even the price of oil-


Finally, make sure to 'Google' this- WHO OWNS THE FED?, and go to the site with the five charts and read through the names of the people and the companies that are listed. (These are the same charts being displayed at the beginning of video #5 above.)

Good luck to you, and make sure to spread your Ripoff Report all over the web at sites like Twitter and Facebook!
