I am sorry to hear about your situation. In addition to the other lawyer's suggestion, you may want to contact the Boston Bar Association or Massachusetts Bar Association and ask for pro bono (free) legal representation. Also, many courts have a free lawyer of the day program to give guidance.
First, you should be protected from the abuse. If she hit you with her car, you should call the police and make a report about it--especially because you ended up in the hospital. I don't know if you are still living in the same household, but you could also get a restraining order to prevent her from engaging in further abuse.
It would help to know what community you are living in, so that you may be directed to resources of legal assistance in your area. If you don't have children, there are still issues with immigration, etc. I do not handle family law (divorce) but if you want some more information about the other issues, please contact me and I'll try to steer you toward some resources. Good luck.
