I was on a side street turning L onto a busy street. There was a long large white van blocking my view from turning. I was at a stop sign. As I started to move out I did look both ways first. There was a red auto over a block to my left & right an auto was way behind tracks. We have a long set of tracks due to busy street on a slant. As I turn, another car on my left hit my car so hard that the seat belt did not hold and I was moved all the way to the right of car & this intensified impact on my left side head to left driver window. My car was totaled. Loc momentarily, disoriented, taken to ed via ambulance, 2 inch laceration to scalp. This initiated many symptoms of illness that ed never knew about. Ct showed irregularities to left brain, I was unable to write legible, my texts were not understandable, my sister stated she hated to call because I wasn't making sense & I fell continuously for no reason. I caused numerous broken ribs due to falls & once had to be hospitalized due to rib separating from sternum. My psychiatrist put me on additional medication due to depression. Had pt to increase muscle tone in legs. Just had a radical mastectomy 5 mo previously and I knew I wasn't right. The police report indicated other car was going 25mph which can't be correct. The speed limit was 30mph & everyone who lives in area know our trains are so long that you want to cross them before a train comes. My car was nearly on train tracks. I know by turning left, I was at fault but the van that blocked my view was illegally parked in a bus stop. I attempted to file a law suit against Chrysler/Fiat because no air bags deployed because seat belt did not hold me in place. No lawyer wanted to go against a car company. I also have rheumatoid arthritis. I was hurt badly, my auto insurance canceled me. I've been on ssdi since 2011 due multiple surgeries. I live off ssdi only.
