Hopefully, no one needs to get sued; that's what insurance is for.

The driver took responsibility for the vehicle and committed the act, so he or she is directly liable.

What happens when an insured driver hits someone depends on the state you live in. In a no-fault state you present your claim to your insurance company for payment.

You should check with your insurance company to be sure.

What is the pedestrians law.?

In the U.S. and Canada the law is: * Cross on crosswalks (if a car hits a pedestrian in a crosswalk that's not a good thing! * Most crosswalks have either an automatic signal to tell the pedestrian when to cross or there is a button close by the pedestrian can push to change the crosswalk signal. * If pedestrians J-walk (not in a crosswalk) then it's not the driver's fault in most cases. * If the weather is bad it's up to the pedestrian to be aware as much as the driver of vehicles and if you go out dressed in black or any dark clothing and think that you have are the cock of the J-walk think again! If you have dark clothing on and were not giving drivers a chance to see you then charges may not be laid against the driver and you're on your own. NOTE: A pedestrian is just as responsible for walking even across a crosswalk as a driver is seeing them.

The driver of a rented Uhaul hits a parked car and leaves a not but the other driver does not call until two weeks later what can be done?

There are two ways to deal with this: 1. If the renter of the Uhaul purchased collision and liability insurance at the time of rental, then he needs to file a claim with Uhaul. Their insurance company will take care of it. 2. If the renter did NOT purchase Uhaul's insurance, then the driver is responsible and his personal collision insurance should take care of you. If the driver has no insurance, your other option is to take them to civil court or small claims court to recoup the cost of the damages.

Again assuming he was negliegent.
