I was involved in an accident on May 6, 1999. I had a vehicle pull out in front of me going about 65 mph. I ended up T- boning him on his driver side. My air bag did not deploy, my seatbelt did not hold me in position to where I hit the rearveiw mirror with my forehead and broke it. The road surface was wet because it had rained earlier. The boy in the other vehicle was driving an older model S-10 Blazer the impact throw him to the passenger side of his vehicle. He substained minor injuries while am suffering from severe whiplash, back-aches, head-aches and numbness. I strongly feel with the impact I took the air bag should"ve deployed and the seat belt should"ve held me in place and brakes would"ve slowed me down sooner. In the police report it is marked no for safety device on but it was on because I remember having to reach my cell phone to call for helpbut at that time it had locked me in and I had to release the lever to move to where the cell phone had falling. I called the police department and talked to dan mack who investigated the accident. He said he agreed with me because I would"ve substained more injuries. As of my knowledge the police report was never changed. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and services.
