 Description of the problemI was driving home from work on 5/27/15 around sunset and two deer jumped over a barbwire fence at the end of round hay bales. At this time, i was driving approximately 65 mph when i seen them, barely having time to stomp on my brakes. I estimate i hit them going at least 55 to 60 mph and my airbags did not deploy on impact. I am concerned with why they did not deploy especially since my car is possibly totaled. I hit the deer from the middle of my bumper to the driver side of my car, sending the hood into the windshield and smashing the driver side back into the doors. The damages go on and on, thankfully i was wearing my seat belt at the time. But since the accident i have been suffering from multiple injuries that the medications prescribed do not remotely touch the pain: neck pain with numbness that comes and goes to my hands, severe back all the way down to my butt, pelvic pain with numbness to my buttocks, left sided rib pain with shortness of breath especially with to much exertion and pain with deep breathes, left knee/ankle pain and the inability to bear complete weight to knee/ankle along with swelling. Severe pain that shoots down back to pelvic when bending over, inability to cross legs and ankles without causing stabbing pain in pelvic area. As a nurse myself, i personally feel that if the airbags deployed like they were meant to do so i would not have nearly as many issues as i do now. The purpose of airbags are to prevent injuries and since mine did not deploy, i'm suffering severely with constant pain that keeps my from sleeping well(causing fatigue), the inability to stand or sit for a prolonged amount of time, and to stand in certain positions.
