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.

I'm not sure why you're being downvoted for this -- it's a legitimate question. Drivers are responsible for watching where they're going, but people playing around moving cars also need to be aware of the cars and of staying out of their path.

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.

Agreed, of course, #23 -- but if you're playing in a driveway and a car in that garage/driveway/carport/whatever starts, and are old enough to be posting on FML, why wouldn't you get out of the way?

You know, my mom ran over my bike when I was a kid, and I was pretty bummed about that, but usually she told me to get the fuck out of the way before she got in the car...
