Who is at fault if a bicycle hits a car?
If a bicycle hits a car and is following all road rules, it may be determined that the motor vehicle driver is at-fault in the accident. If a bicyclist is rounding a corner at the same moment that a car is turning right as well and an accident occurs, by default the driver of the motor vehicle is at fault.
Can a cyclist sue a driver?
Probably, but the driver is not always at fault. As with any other situation where someone else’s negligence played a role in causing an accident (and your resulting injuries), if you were riding a bicycle and were hit by a car, you can file a personal injury lawsuit in the local branch of your state’s civil court.
