    Answered . You should go to the hospital if you or your son were injured. The fact that the car hit your house, in and of itself, is not the deciding factor. I suggest you get looked at if there is any question that you or your son were hurt or either of you have any symptoms of pain or discomfort. If you or your son are hurt, you should later consult with an attorney.

    Good luck.

    Answered . I am going to go the other way and respectfully disagree with all of my colleagues. You were in a house. Where do we draw the line. Did something hit you? No! Did something fall on you? Not that you mentioned. Did the house vibrate and you think you have post traumatic stress? Please! You are going to waste your time and money if you invest in this nonsense case. I can not imagine an attorney willing to take this case for personal injury. I can not imagine an insurance company willing to settle this case for personal injury. You must have some serious Emotional Distress. Maybe seeking psychiatric help would be more appropriate if you wish to have a viable personal injury case. Of course this is just one lawyer's opinion, who like you, is from Bridgeport. Good luck. Great question.

    Answered . You should obtain needed medical care and treatment immediately and follow the doctor's advice. Do not give any statement to the adverse party or insurance company nor grant them access to any medical records. Photograph the injuries and the damage done to any property. Contact a personal injury attorney in your area as soon as possible so that you can protect your rights. You may also find it helpful to review the Legal Guides I have published on Avvo.com dealing with many of the issues you are now facing.
