car hit my bike and bike is damaged pretty bad. my bike was parked and he was backing up very fast. he says it's my fault too since i parked on a no parking spot. but it was 11PM and i gave him plenty space. also, he even saw me parking my bike ( he was smoking cig ). maybe he was drinking but i didn't called the cops at the time...so it's too late.
my bike was up for sale. due to his actions, value of my bike would go down even after fixing it. handle bar is bent too...
how could i sue him or make him pay?
do i need a lawyer for that?? it's been two months since i moved here and things are new... so detail please.
