I was driving in Boston during rush hour and I hit a guy who was listening to an ipod with earplugs. He walked off the sidewalk without even looking in my direction I'm guessing because my car is small and was below the roof line of other parked cars and because he couldn't hear a thing because of his headphones. So my side view mirror hit him in the elbow and he may have broken it. I gave him my information and this was two days ago. I know insurance will cover this thing to a certain extent but what if he tries to sue me for more damages? I feel like he was negligent not me and so I (or my insurance) shouldn't have to pay anything for his injury. I feel bad for him but how could I know he was going to walk in the street? Is that how it will work?
