Can I recover even if the motorist never hit me, but caused me to have an accident?

Return to FAQ Videos


Yes, most certainly. If a motorist, the driver of a car, causes you to go down on your bicycle or have to lay your bicycle down, even if there’s no interaction or impact between the car and your bicycle, you can certainly pursue a claim and make a recovery for any injuries that were caused by that motorist being negligent in the operation of their motor vehicle, even in the absence of an impact. Yes, if you have been harmed on a bicycle because a car cut in front of you, turned in front of you, passed by you and cut in front of you, you can certainly make a claim.
