    I agree with the other responses posted. Document the incident. Obtain full copies of your own auto insurance to examine it for MEDPAY and Under Insured/Uninsured coverages. Do not give a telephone statement to an insurance adjuster. Get competent medical assistance from a medical doctor. If you have a personal injury, you should at least consult with an experienced attorney.
