Help!

A kiddo suddenly ran out without checking there is any car coming and i happen to bang the kid (p.s. there is a bum infront and my car is going 20-30km/h) after that the kid just quickly get up and run into the house. To make sure the kid is ok, i went down and check with her and she was crying and saying that her head is damn painful. So i quickly just take her and her guardian to to nearest clinic to check and the doctor said better to admit hospital and there we go to the nearest private hospital and due to it is a private hospital, doing those scanning could cost alot, and i m not going to pay for it as it is really not my fault causing this and her relatives suggest to go to general hospital BUT . they said i need to pay the ambulance transportation fee (RM150) in order to settle this and they will pay the fees charged by general hospital. And i agree to that.

Hopefully, the kid has no bleeding and a very minor concussion and doctor said to admit for 24hrs to observe.

Here is the question, should i make the police report ? coz i saw a "kes polis" stamp on her file in general hospital
and because they seem like they dont want to make this matter big and i m just here dunno what should i do.

Better to report, not for anything but for a record.

Make police report and include that the parent or guardian is satisfied with your contribution.

If u have any whatsapp or message or such to support this, keep them.

Please be very careful what you say in your report.

Professional advice here.

1. Consult your insurance agent. Make a detailed timeline of what happened, where, time, witnesses, conversations.
2. Make a police report immediately after getting advice
3. Inform your insurance you had an incident.
4. I will guarantee u 99% you will be sued somewhere down the line. Point 1-3 will better safeguard you.

Insurance will cover you if you are sued but you need to make a police report and inform your insurance company to prepare for that eventuality.

Oh boy ! With all the advices above, if I were in your shoes I would be praying frantically that nothing happens to that child within the next few days and the doctors scan all turned out O.K.

Hi Guys
Thanks for all the advice. I really appreciate it.
I had made the police report and contact my insurance agent. Hope everything will be okay.

One last point. Most of the time you won't get a civil summons until 6 months to 2 years later. In the mean time, keep the documents I mentioned earlier safely filed away.

It'll be ok as that's what insurance is for. Your onus is to inform your insurance when an incident happens, which I hope you have done.
