There are downsides to riding bikes in Detroit as well. For instance, does this sound like something you’re wondering: I got hit by a car on my bike in Detroit. Can I sue?
When you were hit while riding your bicycle, you can most likely sue, assuming you weren’t the one being negligent.
For example, if you were following the rules of the road, but a drunk driver veered off the road and collided with you, you could sue that driver. They would also likely face criminal charges for hurting you. If you were struck when a distracted driver ran a red light, you could sue that driver for their negligence.
