    Beery's answer is good, but it's actually more complicated. In most crashes, one or both parties were breaking the law. The fact that the biker may have been breaking the law in this case does not excuse the driver from liability. Anyone who gets behind the wheel of a car should know this. Of course, it also matters what the witnesses saw, what the traffic signals said, what speed the car was traveling, whether or not the driver was being cautious, whether or not they looked for pedestrians, et cetera. However, most of that will only matter if it goes to trial--which, given these facts, is dubious. The most likely outcome is that the driver's insurer will indemnify them against the claim, the biker's medical bills will be paid, and life will go on for both of the parties.

    If the cyclist is riding on the sidewalk, chances are he was riding illegally. Unless the cyclist was walking his bicycle and acting as a pedestrian, in order for him not to be at fault, the law would have to allow sidewalk cycling.

    If you've admitted riding on the sidewalk, and if sidewalk cycling is illegal where the accident happened, you've already lost any case you might have had.

    Cycling on the sidewalk has a crash rate that's 25 times the rate when riding in the road. Only a fool cycles on the sidewalk. It looks safe, but looks can be deceptive. Ride in the road, where you're ACTUALLY safe.
