Complaint - Steering, Suspension

2001 DODGE STRATUS. LOSS OF CONTROL. RESULTING IN 2 SEPARATE CRASHES. I DID SUSTAIN INJURY IN THE LAST INCIDENT. I WAS TRYING TO TURN LEFT INTO A PARKING LOT, WHEEL TURNED ONLY PARTIALLY. I COULD NOT GET IT TO MOVE THE CORRECT DIRECTION, AND I RAN INTO A TALL (15IN.) CURB. SUSTAINED WHIPLASH AND A LARGE KNOT ON MY HEAD. THE 1ST INCIDENT WAS WHILE TRYING TO TURN LEFT AND MY CAR WOULD NOT GO THAT WAY. I ENDED UP HITTING YET ANOTHER TALL CURB,DUE TO LOSS OF CONTROL. IT MAY BE WORTHY TO NOTE I HAVE REPLACED THE LOWER CONTROL ARM ON THE DRIVERS SIDE, BUT AM STILL GETTING PERIODS OF HAVING A HARD TIME TURNING MY WHEEL. THIS OCCURS WHETHER IN MOTION OR JUST STARTING MY CAR AND TURNING THE WHEEL TO LEAVE . I ALSO HAD TO REPLACE RIGHT SIDE DUE TO FAILURE OF THE WHEEL TO TURN RIGHT AS WELL. I ACTUALLY WAS GOING ABOUT 30MPH AND BARELY MADE MY TURN, ALMOST BROADSIDING A SITTING VEHICLE. WHEN I CHECKED IT, MY TIRE WAS "BENT INWARD' AT THE TOP. THE WHOLE TIRE WAS, WELL, LIKE THIS, / (BUT ACTUALLY BENT THE OTHER WAY, INWARD. MY STEERING WHEEL WORKS RANDOMLY. PLEASE ADVISE, AS THIS IS MY ONLY MODE OF TRANSPORTATION. I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO HAVE FIXED ON IT! I'VE ALREADY DIPPED ALMOST $2000 "FIXING" IT. THANK YOU. THE INCIDENT DATE BELOW IS JUST THE LATEST. THE ONE WHERE I HIT MY HEAD. AS OF TODAY, MY STEERING HAS A MIND OF ITS OWN.
