That's completely irresponsible of her... She should get in some serious trouble for such reckless driving. I hope you're okay though!
Something very similar to this happened to a friend of mine in high school, although it wasn't his mother who hit him, but instead his older sister. She knew he was there and told him to move, but when he tried saying "hang on a sec" she just started going. He ended up getting seriously injured, having to use a wheelchair for over a year, eventually able to start using crutches, and now he used a cane. He might have to use that cane for the rest of his life. And with all that time in the hospital and in physical therapy, he missed an entire school year, and graduated a year late. I know his sister got in trouble, but I'm not sure what kind of trouble..
I must admit: I briefly paused at "mom pulled out." But yes, negligent driving yields terrible accidents fairly often. Hopefully, you aren't seriously injured.
Were you playing in the parking lot? It's still her fault but it seems a little odd
Sounds like they were playing in their driveway. Which in a lot of places is a spot were kids play. Or people might cross, or walk up if they were going to your house. OP was playing with their dad, I would assume this isn't the first time, but even if it's not a regular thing, the driver always has to observe their surroundings.
