You want me to do what?

It's been a whole month to-the-day of when my car accident happened. The day of the only major complaint I had was that my right wrist hurt so bad. The ER wasn't sure if it was broken so they sent to to a specialist who has determined that there is no fracture, just a bruise on my bone. He put me in a removable brace and sent me on my way.

Since then the pain has only gotten worse. It is sharp and intense whenever I try to do anything with the right hand. Luckily, I am left-handed with most things, but there are still a number of things I need my right hand for. Being that it got worse, I headed back to the doctor today only to be told that it was "odd" and "not normal" for there to be intense, sharp pain. He still refuses to say that it is anything more than a bruised bone and said that the reason for the pain must be that the "tendons are inflammed." He wants me to go to physical therapy and see him in 3 weeks.

Unfortunately my insurance does not want to pay for it up front and says that I will have to pay for it and wait until they decide to reimburse me from the other guy's bodily-injury coverage. I have been told that I should not have to pay anything out-of-pocket and that since it was decided that I am "not at fault" then his insurance should cover it.

I have a lot of thinking and decisions to make.
