Can u sue someone for hitting me with their car....but?
Ok, so i was walking down the side walk when i came up to an intersection and i had the walking signal and so i started to walk accross but a few steps in a guy who was waiting to go ended up going and hitting me ( not hard core b/c i'm fine) but stop right after making contact. I fell to the ground and he got out of his truck and asked me if i was ok, and if i needed help and about 10 seconds later i got up and went on the side walk and he said he was goign to park his truck out of the way of traffic and i told him that i was ok and he could go.....could i still sue him even tho i didnt call the police or file a report? Thanks ( i don't want to sue him I'm just curious about this)

Well what did you plan on sueing him for?

If you did file a lawsuit, he would notify his insurance company and they would defend him in court.
And since you state you are fine I'm assuming you had no medical treatment therefore no medical bills. In that case, his insurance company would offer your attorney a low amount of money to settle the claim. This would be a cost of defense type offer.

Furthermore, I do not know of ANY attorney who would represent you bc you have no case.

did you get any of his information? I had this happen to me, but I was on my bicycle... But I wasn't hurt at the time, so I didn't get any of his information - he simply gave me some cash for the wheel he bent up on my bicycle. But then later that day my knee seized up and I had to go to the hospital because it hurt SO BAD and I couldn't walk or bike for a long time, and ended up having to get physical therapy for my stupid knee. Trouble is, sometimes your body saves you from feeling the effects of it right away so you can get away from whatever it is that hurt you, but then later you have to deal with it and it sucks.

So I'd say that if I had gotten his information or something, I would have attempted to sue him for the $1400 hospital bill I got, and the $400 in physical therapy I had to go through to get my knee working right again. (I still have to do special exercises to keep it in good working order or it just starts killing me again...)

So, yes, you can. There's a statute of limitations of like, two years or so.

But don't sue frivolously. If you aren't hurt or whatever, than really, leave the idiot alone. (people should look forward before going forward)

Well, yes you can. However, if you have no documented damages you have no suit or claim. How have you been injured? Did you seek any medical treatment? If so, call him and ask for his insurance info. Call the insurer and file a claim. Your medical expenses may be covered under what is known as PIP coverage or directly against his liability coverage.

Yes, you could possibly be sued. If you didn't exchange information though, he might have a tough time finding you to do so.

1. You weren't hurt.
2. You told him you were okay and he could go.

This wouldn't even make it into court because there's nothing to go on.

First of all, you would need witnesses as it would be your word against his.

You would need to prove damages. You said you were not hurt and did not seek medical attention. So what are your damages?

You could contact a lawyer, but your case sounds weak. The only one who might come out ahead is your lawyer.

Aha! So you're wondering if you can still get sued?

Maybe. But he probably won't get very far in the lawsuit. After all, he indicated that you can go.

You MAY want to tell your insurance company first, say that you need to open this POSSIBLE claim, didn't get his name or nothing, but it's at this corner and so and so. Or you can keep quiet and open a claim if you did get a letter. But definitely write all this down, and date-time stamp it so you have a clear recollection / written memo if you have to recall it should his lawsuit arrive later.
