Lawrence, I hope this message finds you well, present circumstances excluded. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of practice experience handling matters such as this one. It is a pleasure to assist you today.
First off, I am glad that you are alright as this was obviously a very serious situation that could have been much worse. As to the question at hand, unless the vehicle was bought new and was less than one year old, it is unlikely that you will be able to file a suit for this being a lemon under applicable lemon laws.
If there is a law suit to be had, it will be under the theory of products liability. Products liability is a form of negligence. In the present case, you will have to be able to prove that the auto manufacturer had a duty, breached that duty, the duty caused harm and you will have to show damages.
That is possible, though the company will attempt to cite what they will claim is your own negligence in wrecking. You will need to be able to defend against that defense.
Since you live in New Hampshire, you can file the law suit in New Hampshire. I would use the website avvo.com to find a products liabilty/plaintiff attorney.
