I was riding my bycycle down a bikepath when a car came through the stop sign and stopped right in front of the bikepath at the same time that i got there. I slammed into the side of the car flipped over the hood and
onto the street on the other side..ambulanced to the hospital suffered severe concusion,fractured back and neck and memory loss along with damage to my right knee that might need surgery. what do I do??Im in a no-fault state (michigan) and they are utilizing my auto insurance...who is at fault here...the police report states that I am the responsible. he rolled the stop sign where i did not have one. He did not look before making a complete stop in the bikepath. we got there at the same time.

Sorry buddy........you do not have the right of way on a sidewalk, only the street.

By rights you should have stopped your bike and walked across the street and go back on it. Riding it across a crosswalk, is illegal in most states.

You caused the accident.
