    Default Pedestrian Hit by a Car in a Parking Lot

    My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: Florida
    Hi. I was walking into Publix the other day when a woman "did not see" me and caught my left arm/hand/purse on her drivers side mirror. She did not stop immediately, she parked her car then came over to see if I was ok. 5 Firemen that were on lunch break witnessed the entire thing and asked me if I wanted to fill out an incident report. At the time I thought, I was not HIT hard, did not fall down, after firemen checked my arm/hand wrist, after all I was not bleeding and no apparent broken bones I said I was ok and went about our business. Woman that hit me was nonchalant about the situation and wanted to make sure i was ok. Long story short, here we are 2 days later and I am sore as heck on my entire left side probably due to the tug and me "going with the car" so to speak and all I have is her license plate #. Can anything be done at this point? I should get checked out as I am hurting more now that Wednesday afternoon when it happened. I appreciate any feedback. St Pete police officer notated the "incident" after the fact as the woman left after the firemen told her I was ok. All I have is a police report#.

    Thank you in advance.

    Were the police able to give you her name and address from the license plate number?

    You should be able to contact the police department and see when the report will be ready, then go get a copy. Get yourself taken care of. Make sure to tell any doctors you see that the injury is the result of a car accident. Your health insurance company will then contact you for the information for the other party to go after their insurance.

    You should also visit the fire station and get the fire fighters' information.
