When someone is injured, as pedestrian walking in the streets struck by a vehicle, or riding a bicycle struck by a vehicle, it is a little different than other situations, but the basic principles still apply. First of all, the vehicle that struck you, to their own insurance, is supposed to provide no fault benefits. Even if you’re at fault, that vehicle provides insurance to get your medical benefits paid and to get lost earning paid, if you’ve lost earnings from work. Then, the second portion of any claim like that, would be to sue that driver, or that vehicle owner, for the damages they caused by their negligence.
