If your child is hit by a car, your first course of action should be to get him the medical attention he needs. Nothing is as important as his health, and there could be internal damage that you’re not aware of. If paramedics do not arrive on the scene, take him to the nearest emergency room and have him evaluated. Also, make sure the police complete a full police report about what happened. You will need that documentation for your legal case against the driver who hit your son. Once you’ve done these two steps, contact an attorney to talk about your case and your legal options.
The best way to file a claim when you’ve been hit by a car is to talk with a lawyer who has experience working with pedestrian accidents.

Losing a member of your family in a tragic pedestrian accident is heartbreaking and those types of losses result in a lot of grief. You deserve to be compensated for that loss. A personal injury attorney will be able to advise you about the right type of lawyer for you.
The statute of limitations is different for every state with regard to pedestrian accidents. In your state, you might have a limit of six months, two years or even longer.

Just because there are no immediate injuries after you’ve been hit by a car, that doesn’t mean that you weren’t hurt. Some injuries can take days, weeks or even months to show up. Others aren’t immediately apparent because of the rush of adrenaline that’s often experienced after an accident. Talk to a lawyer to determine what you should do for your particular case. You may still be able to sue.
