• i have a question, what if you are not hit, but in avoiding the collision you come off the bike (i.e grab front brake and go over the bars) is the car that caused this at all labile?

    it's my understanding that if a car driver causes an accident, it makes no difference whether he hits you or not, HOWEVER, the usual caveat applies: if you were going too fast to be able to stop safely in time then you are liable as (s)he did not actually cause you to crash, you did (by going too fast).
