You need to speakwith a personal injury/auto accident attorney in Kern county, CA about all of this.  They can represent you in the suit being brought against you as well as handling any counter claim on your part.  Without more facts of the accident it's hard to say who was at fault but you certainly have suffered damages here.  Even if you were partially at fault and contributed to the accident, you still might be able to recover a monetary sum for all of your injuries.

Again, consult with a car accident lawyer in Kern county, CA on all of this.  An initial consultation in a case such as this is usually free.
