    which one of these is right? (since, ever since, since then)

    1. I had a major accident back in the days & since then I haven't had any injury
    2. I had a major accident back in the days & ever since then I havem't had any injury.
    3. I had a major accident back in the days & I haven't had any injury ever since.

    I always get confused, right before I get ready to make similar sentence.

    I could use some help.

    Also, feel free to correct in mistakes in my sample sentences, if any

    Thanks in advance, guys.

    "Back in the days" doesn't really work as a phrase. We sometimes say "Back in the day..." when being very nostalgic and talking about a time in the past but not a specific time. "Back in the days when houses were cheaper and our lives weren't ruled by technology..." is OK.

    When talking about a major accident, I would expect you to be more precise. "I had a major accident while I was at high school", for example.

    If you're going to use "any" then it should be followed by "injuries". If you want to use "injury" then use "an".

    I had a major accident several years ago, but I haven't had an injury since then.
    I had a major accident during a skiing holiday, but I haven't had any [more] injuries since.
