 Description of the problemOn september 23, 2002 i was involved in an auto accident. A saturn turned directly into my vehicle's path. I was traveling at aproximately 40miles per hour and hit the saturn on the left front of the vehicle. My car then left the roadway and hit a tree head on. The entire front of my car was damaged and pushed back. The saturn's air bags deployed, my air bags did not. Both cars were totaled. I was driving a 2001 ford taurus that i had purchased two months ago as a program car. The steering wheel of the auto was warped and my right breast was damaged. I spent 5 days in the hospital due to the damage to my breast resulting in internal bleeding, which required blood transfusions. It has been one year and my breast still hasn¿t healed, and i may be permantly disfigured from this accident. My daughter, sitting in the passenger seat, obtained a neck injury that required surgery and 9 months of physical therapy. She still has problems with her neck. My grandson was in the backseat and was treated and released from the hospital. *la
