In Aug 2013 My Hyundai Elantra hydroplaned and hit head on into a guardrail and head on into the side of a semi. I still have medical issues from the concussion and it has been difficult for me to everyday activities since the accident. I still have several medications I take and have occipital nerve damage and have to see a neurologist among many other tests and doctors. How do I get compensation from the car manufacturer for my injuries and ongoing appointments and medicines. This is something that hasn't gone away and it is with me everyday. it has affected my eyes, memory, I have frequent headaches and I cant do things like I used to.
