Sounds like you have whiplash. If Kentucky is a "no-fault" state then the following may not apply.
Find a good personal injury attorney. He should be able to recommend a doctor who treats soft-tissue damage. You should be getting deep massages at least 3 times per week (by a therapist) for your soft-tissue damage, if your're not already doing so. These treatments can last several months or more depending upon the severity of your injuries.
Going forward, don't say "you saw him coming" anymore. You saw nothing. You were stopped, waiting to make the left, and you were struck. If you saw him coming, it can be turned around on you that you should have done something to get out of the way.
It used to be that you could expect to receive approximately 5 - 8 times your medical expenses, in addition to the damages to your personal property, but your attorney will tell you what you can expect. Hopefully, the attorney will take the case on contingency, and you'll pay him 30% - 40% of what you recover.
Hope this helps - and hope you get back to "normal" as soon as possible!
