I have a friend who has part of her brain missing so she doesn’t always know what to do. On July 1 she was in a car accident, someone else’s fault and he had no insurance. She had been in pain for over a month when my mom and I took her to the emergency room and her parents did nothing to help her. She has bulging discs from the accident and she also has a whiplash which has affected her back as well.
Moral of this story; get to a doctor when you have injuries from a car accident, even if you have to take yourself.
