Legal Question & Answer: Car Exiting a Driveway
November 18, 2010
Legal Question: I was riding the correct way down the road and had lights on my bike. If I would have kept going straight, I certainly would have been hit, and they pulled out right in front of me, so there was no time to stop.
Chicago Personal Injury Attorney: The car is at fault. It started the chain of event that caused you to crash. Anytime a vehicle is to enter the stream of traffic, it has to do do so in safety and without causing damages to others already on the road. You had the right of way, the other driver is responsible to pay for your damages-if any.
