Forgive if my terminology is off. Situation: a subdivision

Forgive if my terminology is off.Situation: a subdivision consisting of two adjoining land lots was developed and never platted as a private subdivision (it cannot be proven that the original developer had any intent to make the subdivision private.). The first land lot has mandatory restrictive covenants. The second land lot was parceled out and sold to other developers. The various developers of the second land lot DID NOT place restrictive covenants on the land. Homes were built and sold (no restrictive covenants). Years later when the original developer was done, an HOA was formed per the restrictive covenants of the first land lot. The HOA decided that the wanted access gates and petition the County to make the entire subdivision private (lots 1 and 2). The property owners of the second lot did not agree with the HOA and would not place their properties under a convent agreeing to be responsible for the maintenance of the road private roads and street lights. All properties abutting roads must be subject covenant agreeing to maintain the road before it can be made private. A public hearing was held and a home objected to have a private road. No decision was made that date and the object homeowner has since moved. Later, it appears that HOA Attorney and The County Attorney made an “off record” deal on behalf of the HOA (first land lot). The County Commissioners ask the County Attorney if all was in order regarding the HOA request to close the road. The County Attorney lied and said all was in order. The Commissioners Approved the closure a handed the deed to the HOA. The HOA placed access gate at all entrances 2 gates in land lot 1 and 1 gate on lot the 2, the most desirable gate. In my opinion, HOA has engaged in deliberate fraud, extortion, attempted extortion, and harassment against nonmembers of the HOA who have property not subject to the HOA's by laws, Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions. The HOA deceived Lee County authorities in their petition for the closure of the road and placement of the entrance gate off Ledo Road (land lot 2). For years the HOA engaged in theft by deception to collect monies from non-HOA members and promoted the deception to new home owners and real-estate professionals. (Hi welcome to the HOA!). An example of the HOA's corruption is the fact that nonmembers of the HOA who want to exercise their legal right to ingress and egress their home from the closest point of entry, (Ledo Rd. gate) are required by the HOA to pay a fee currently equal to the annual dues paid by HOA members. Otherwise, they must travel approximately 3.5 additional miles in either direction from Ledo Road to Fussell Rd. (land lot 1) to get to their home. The HOA acknowledges that by law the must give us access to our home. But the say they have the authority to dictate what gate we “non-members” who won't HOA fees use. The HOA's arguments is that we are using its amenity “the gate” which is the most expensive to maintain. So if we don't want to pay the HOA's dues to maintain the roads streets lights and whatever else they decide, we will be rerouted to the less expensive (furthest from home gate). The HOA Board of Directors say they can charge whatever amount of money they want to non- HOA members who are trapped behind their gates. The amount just happens to be equal to full HOA dues. Is this a shakedown? County Commissioners will do nothing. They say the issue is with the HOA. The subdivision did not meet the criteria to be private. Had the law been followed, the gates would not been in place. Help! Note: The includes include non-HOA members in their budget and send out invoices as "Dues, Fees, or Donations"

I was a passenger in a rear end collision. Were at a stand

I was a passenger in a rear end collision . Were at a stand still when the vehicle behind us made contact.I was sitting in the back seat behind the passenger.At the time I was already recovering from being in a coma for a month. I was still in a wheelchair but was making progress in walking. This accident prolonged my recovery. There has been 8598.72 dollars in medical cost. His insurance has paid5251.31. They sent me an offer of 2300.00 . A contract releasing them of anymore responsibility . I took it upon myself to check and make sure there were no outstanding bills. Come to find out 3347.41 is still owed. This has upset me. Thank goodness I signed nothing. I didn't find their offer reasonable and now that I know there are still unpaid bills, I'm very unhappy. Their offer wouldn't have paid off the rest of the medical exspenses.I my not sure what a reasonable amount is and if I should get an attorney . I was hoping to come to a settlement without one,but now I feel they were trying to be sneaky ,devious and totally unfair. Their offer would have left me with over a 1ooo.00 dollars owing and no compensation .
