Can a pedestrian or bicyclist sue the driver that injured them?
Q: If I was a pedestrian or riding a bicycle and I was struck by a car, can I sue the driver and owner of that car for my injuries?
A: Yes, if the driver is clearly at fault for the accident and you sustained injuries. A pedestrian or bicyclist will likely be able to recover compensation from the driver and/or the owner of the car for their injuries. A claim is made against the driver of the car that caused the accident, and your damages are covered by their insurance company.
