Love how all you people are bashing Wendy Saddler. You all have no idea what happend and its not fair to pick on a person trying to tell you the real story. My question is for all you people whould you like to put your life on the line everyday (without getting paid for it), get hurt and then be treated like durt? Dave and The other FireFighter who got hurt on Sept 17 are losing everything they worked so hard for because they got hurt and arent getting paid nor being treated fairly.

Funny? I saw dave that day too.. without a hand injury. He even helped us pack house back at our firehouse. He must hold a high tolerance for pain.

Onelove, i can understand you are upset but insurance fraud is a serious crime (as is burglary). Everyone's premiums are going up across the country because of insurance fraud (doesn't matter if you are a firefighter, homeowner, vehicle owner, etc.) it effects us all.
