My little brother was involved in a car accident yesterday and we're looking for all the help we can get with medical bills.
He was on his way to work yesterday when he was rear-ended by a woman who was on her phone. He ran out of the car to see if she was okay. She yelled at him and told him he’s not old enough to drive (When he’s 18 years old, which is old enough in Illinois.)
He doesn’t remember anything after that other than waking up in an Ambulance. The lady who had rear-ended him had been rear-ended herself. The car who hit her, sent my little brother against the pavement which resulted in the injuries above. His leg is also dinged up.
He’s better and out of the hospital. He has a chipped and loose tooth from the incident, as well as his lips being badly bruised and cut up. We also have to look for symptoms of a concussion as well.
The problem is that we are definitely not financially stable. We’re not certain on the amount we have to pay the hospital yet, or how much our car will cost to get it fixed, but we definitely won’t have enough to get much paid. He had a catscan done as well as an xray for his leg at the hospital, which will probably be quite costly.
Because of this, we also won’t be having much of a Christmas this year either.
We thank you all for your support and help! We're still waiting on information from the other two parties. My brother is doing better! He's been going to therapy sessions for his leg. The therapist said that his bone was twisted which was why he was in pain. He's doing much better now, and his leg isn't hurting as much anymore.
