Hi  My  name  is  carl   I  had a massive  head injury on Jan 15,1999.
It  totally  changed  my life  where i am not the same   and never  
will be  again. On  of  what happened.  About  9  or 10 pm  on jan
16, 1999 someone  broke into  my  place   and beat me  up   took a  
tire iron or  whatever   beat my skull in   leaving  a  8  inch  gash on  
top of  head   about  3 inches  deep  and  about 2 -3 inches  wide.  
It  wasnt  till  about 930  next am i was found  one my friends went
over   and seena  blood trail   from my home  . Landlord  refused   
to allow access   finally got in i was  found  in a blood  soaked  
room  laying in  a coma    with less then  15 %  of my blood left in  
body    was  rushed   to hosp  and concluded  if been  another  30
min  been to late.    
After  waking  out of   coma  and  eventually   leaving icu   which i
was there  for  18  days.  I was  transferred   to   Metro health  for
rehab treatments.  

MY ongoing health  troubles  since injury   I  have constant   
troubles  passing out   am on several  medicines  for  both
seizures    and  vertigo  all caused  by   the beating ..   I  left  hosp
too  soon    i was supose stay for 3  months but refused.  
Since injury  I am unable  to work drs  fear  that i  would get hurt in
my  trained  field  industrail    welder    and   millwright     
professions  ive held.  so I am  currently  On  disability    through  
Social Security    been trying   to work  but  not allowed  and is
hard  try get work with  most your skills  now  gone.  
Allot of  people ask  me did  cops caughts the  jerks that did this to
me  the answer   to that is NO Fact  to  matter is this   before all this
happen the then Landlord  was found in my place  stealing  from me
 and when caught    threatened  me  I  never thought anything of a  
75 yr old man  mouthing off  to me.Later found out  cops  refused  to
do anything   for reason his  son was  a  strongsville, ohio    police
