What to do after being hit by a car

As a pedestrian, getting hit by a car can be a very traumatic experience. Whether you were seriously injured or only suffered a few cuts and bruises, you are likely to be suffering mentally and emotionally, and you will be at a much higher risk for conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It is important, therefore, to make sure that you know your rights when it comes to recouping damages for the suffering that you have endured, the wages that you have lost and the medical expenses that you have had to pay.

A third victim, the 28-year-old female driver of a different automobile also suffered injuries.
