I was involved in a single car collision on 9/1/2014. I hit a curb then collided with a tree in a grassy area. When the car impacted the curb, my head hit the steering wheel and my girlfriends head hit the dash. We had our seat belts on but no airbags in the car deployed. Since that time I have had severe headaches and memory issues. Do I have a case?
