Depends! If the accident was the fault of several drivers, or even someone outside of a car who caused the hazard, the law usually permits you to sue any and all of them. It is up to them to settle amongst themselves who should get reimbursed for what damages. If the driver was working or in a company-owned vehicle, the employer may be liable. Do not overlook this possibility. You can't get multiple settlements, but you can sue the responsible party most likely to pay, and this can be helpful if one responsible party is uninsured. A good and experienced pedestrian/bicycle injury attorney should be consulted to best point you in the right legal direction.
