Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. I am sorry to hear about your accident. Can you please tell me whether your employer has more than 50 employees within a 75 mile radius of where you work? Also, how long have you been employed? Finally, can you confirm for me that you are located in North Dakota? I believe that is what you indicated above, I just want to make sure. I very much look forward to helping you on this matter.
