I'm trying to picture this...
So you're making a right turn, presumably from the right lane, onto a clear cross street. The speed limit is 15mph, so I'll assume you're doing at least the limit.
Unless you either slowed to a crawl, or the person who hit you was driving insanely close to start with, or was speeding like a maniac... How do they sideswipe you?
Just as a note - don't leave the scene from someone hitting you. Get the police involved, file a report, get insurance information. Injuries aren't always apparent at the scene of an accident due to adrenaline/endorphins, etc. As long as you have a police report on file and an open insurance case, you've got some fallback if something becomes evident a couple weeks down the road.
