LR4 decided to slip out of its parked gear with me half in and half out of the car.

On the 18th of Feb, 2014, my LR4 decided to slip out of its parked gear with me half in and half out of the car. I was quite hurt as I was trapped between the car and the door with a snowbank preventing the door from fully opening so I could remove my body from the force of the moving car. When I managed to climb over (yes over!) the moving car door and fall into a snowbank, the door slammed me (my body broke its hinge) and sent me 10-15 ft, parallel to the car on the snow. How it pushed me just the slightest bit I would have landed under the wheels. To date, LR corporate and LR dealer have done nothing to support my claim and demand for an inquiry as to why a stationary car would suddenly move to a new gear with neither person nor object near the gear shift or break pedal to maneuver the gears out of park. i have missed 4 weeks of work and have had to pay, out of pocket for a rental car. Insurance covers very little. I have had three MRI's, 2 dopplers for blood clots and I still have more to go. I would like to ask if anyone knew how I might contact LR4 beyond customer care to report this incident. Here in the states, all appear to end with customer care. The dealership GM refused to return my calls. Help please.
