Hi. My name is Talia. Thank you for taking time out of your day to read this, if nothing else.
My vehicle was repossessed by a deceptive loan company currently under lawsuit from the state it operates in, and the repossession and towing company they operated with caused major damage to my vehicle’s rear differential by neglecting to keep all wheels on the tow dolly or use a flatbed for this AWD vehicle. I was driving for Uber and Lyft at the time as a primary source of income. I managed to gather up the sum that need be paid to redeem my vehicle from the tow yard, my only hope being that once I got my vehicle back I would be able to resume driving and would be able to work hard to keep my bills paid after the deficit that regaining my vehicle put me and my partner in. With such damage done to the vehicle, this has been impossible, and even as I try and gain steady employment, getting to and from work has been expensive and at some times impossible as the buses aren’t running and paying for to use rideshare services is out of my budget. I’m trying to find employment within walking distance but it has been difficult. All I need is to be able to pay for the repair of my vehicle, but that is a steep $1,200. In the time since all this has started, I’ve had to fight to keep my lights on and to avoid eviction. I’m reaching out for legal assistance and for community resources to keep bills paid for this short time, but I’m staring down the barrel of losing everything. Any help that can be offered would mean the world to me. All I want is to be able to get my life back in order and continue to put good into the world.
