Accident Affects Daily Life

More Info

Hi, my name is Nir and I'm from Israel.  In 2011 while vacationing in the United States with my sister, I was involved in a terrible car accident.  I was 19 at the time and we were having a fun filled vacation in Florida.  We were driving in a car with an American driver, enjoying the nice Florida weather when we were rear-ended from behind.  We didn't know exactly what happened as all of a sudden the car spun around 360 degrees and all the window shattered.  My life flashed in front of my eyes.  It all happened so fast and before I knew what was going on the police were there.  The police evaluated the scene and said the driver of the car that rear ended us hit and ran off.  It was a hit and run and they couldn't find the driver.  They asked us if we needed to go to the hospital in an ambulance.  We said no as the other driver needed to pay as it was their fault, but he was no where to be found.  The police agreed and drove us back to our hotel.  We stayed the rest of the day in the hotel and regrouped ourselves and tried to gather the pieces and get back to our vacation.  The next day I woke up, I realized I was very hurt.  My head hurt bad and my back; and my vision was blurry.  We decided to go to the hospital and get help.  They cared for us and we went back to the hotel that day.  Later they found the driver, and he did not have insurance, so he hit us and ran off.  I have not gotten any compensation for this accident and it has affected my life everyday since then.  I still have terrible back pain 9 years later and sometimes can't get out of bed.  I have PTSD from the accident and bad anxiety as I relive the accident in my head.  I need money to get treatment for my back and therapy to help me deal with the accident.  I am not able to work as the pain is so debilitating.  A vacation of a lifetime turned into a nightmare of a lifetime.  Please help me as I want to move past this and get back to normal and live my life.  I don't know where to turn as I need help with my medical issues.  I surely would appreciate any help and would be very grateful.This is translated and written by Michael Ada who lives in Boise, ID on behalf of Nir who lives in Israel.  Nir is a good friend of mine and I am helping him out.
