I was using a crosswalk, after pushing the button for the walk signal to say it was safe. After about 6 feet across this big SUV pulled out and hit me so hard, that I landed on the ground a few feet from him.
A policeman arrived on scene and took a report from the driver and me and 2 witnesses. I was in so much pain and disoriented so an ambulance took me to the hospital. I was X rayed and they found no broken bones. I was released the same day. For the next few days my left arm was in a lot pain and my whole body was sore.
In a week I am having nerve test done to see why my arm hurts so bad. It has been 2 weeks.
I received a police report and found out the guy never reported it to his insurance company. They did contact him though and a representative came out to talk to me.
I am feeling better except for my arm. It has been a very long 2 weeks, and I haven't been able to do much of anything.
If I find out that I have no serious injuries do I still need a lawyer?
