The police may be liable, but it is difficult to win and you typically must establish permanent injuries. I would start by seeing your physician immediately to determine the extent of your injury. You must start by filing a notice of claim, if you have one, and filing it on the designated party. Keep track of your symptoms and keep a journal of the date and time of the incident and other relevant information.
This question is posted ubder DWI. Perhaps it is more appropriate to repost it under the personal injury section. I don't believe the lack of medical attention will impact the ultimate question as to whether you were operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, You should contact both an experienced dwi and personal injury attorney.
