I am very sorry to hear about the problems you have been having. You really should find a local area personal injury attorney in your area who could help you with this claim. You need to be having good medical treatment for you and your child. Most personal injury attorneys offer a free initial consultation. I would suggest meeting with a couple of attorneys and then choosing one you feel confident in and comfortable with. I truly wish you the very best luck.

I know you are in a difficult financial situation and am sorry that you are currently stuck in this place. What you describe is quite serious and depending on your ability to work in the future your damages may be greater than the policy limits of the policy. Permanent inability to work or decreased ability to work would be a part of your damages and it adds up a lot.
You need an attorney who knows which doctors you should see and how to gauge the amounts you can claim and assist you in determining a settlement amount. You should meet with an attorney immediately. I would be happy to meet with you if you would like.
Providing this answer does not form an attorney-client relationship. Most legal questions are exceedingly fact-sensitive and therefore this answer is a best-guess based on the information you provide. You should consult an attorney licensed in your state to further discuss your matter.
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.
