Good evening, I am so sorry to hear of all that you've been through. I can appreciate the predicament you are in and that hiring a lawyer can be a costly venture, however if you have a promising case, you could find a lawyer to take it on a contingency basis, which means that they take a percentage of the award, so you don't pay up front.
Here as Experts at Just Answer, we are tapped for our sound knowledge of the law and research abilities, to provide legal information to Just Answer's customers. We cannot however, form a solicitor-client relationship herein and as such cannot act for you on your matter.
I would suggest that you try your local lawyers or contact the Law Society Referral Service, as they can put you in contact with a local lawyer chosen for your matter, who will provide a free consultation. They will provide you with several lawyers to meet with to find the one who's right for you.
I truly wish you all the best with this matter and can only hope that somehow, things improve for you.
