How can the poice know what this impaired person did as they did not witness the accident? They are blaming me. I was making a left turn onto a busy street. There was no car in my scope of vision as I attempted to make this turn safely. Both lights east and west were red.
The impaired driver hit my car on the side doors and rear axle (completely bent). My car spun around and stopped heading the opposite direction. He would have to be going at a high rate of speed in order to do such damage. My car was totalled. Additionally, he was unlicensed and uninsured driving his girlfriend's car. My driving record is completely clear for 50 years. I was not at fault and I did not cut in front of him. I have not seen the report but my attorney says "no case".

Get the accident report and consult with another attorney. Since you were making a left turn you must yield the right of way to oncoming traffic. However, if he was speeding then he could forfeit the right of way.

Police reports so not have the final say on who was at fault in a motor vehicle accident. While the responding officer's testimony may be highly regarded, it is not infallible. A good personal injury attorney should be able to help a victim reveal the truth to a jury even when the police report is wrong.

Go to another lawyer. An auto accident lawyer is trained to determine facts which are important to your case. All my colleagues have indicated that a traffic attorney may be able to help. A reconstruction expert may be able to determine the speed at which this individual was driving. If you were injured get a lawyer right away, Best of luck.
