I need about $8000 (gladly I'll accept more) for expenses due to my unemployment situation..

I am in the Midwest and need help with some medical needs as well as unemployment. I have no credit card debt per se. I fell on the Chicago Transit Authority in Chicago December 3, 2011. (I was on a job-hunting trip). The CTA denied my claim, although I reported the fall immediately. I have my farecard to prove I was on CTA at the time I said. The security cameras also should have my fall as I laid there for nearly a minute to get up.I hurt my right shoulder, hip and both elbows. I live in Nebraska and was let go by my employer during Summer, 2011. I need $$$ for an attorney to sue and correct them. Also, I need money for another attorney. My brother died of Avandia a few years ago, and I need $300+ to start the claim process and re-open his estate to get any money that may be available. I need gas money and car repairs as well as car insurance paid. I did NOT deduct taxes from my unemployment. I usually get a refund. Instead, I owe nearly $1000 in Federal and State taxes. Also, I volunteer for historical and other groups and need gas and food money for local and out-of-town events. Money for a trip or small vacation helps, too. I can combine job hunting trips out-of-town with some vacation time. I also could use some new clothes. I want to get grants so I can work full-time for some public-interest advocacy and historical research work. I need maybe $1500-2000 for grant related expenses and travel. I can accomplish things quickly with money versus slowly without.
