What if you were riding a bike to school and you were struck by a car when got better what would you do if they said it was your fault?

well the driver stated the person came out of nowhere.

Unless someone witnessed it or the driver was cited for it , it would be your word against theirs. It would be pretty hard for either side to blame the other without witnesses!

If it were me and I check the rules and realize that I was the one on the wrong, then I would blame myself. If the person says that it was my fault just to do away with the case, then I would talk to him and see whether we could reach an agreement being that we both know who was on the wrong.

well we have a less than 20 mile per hour speed limit in the school zone and you have time to swerve but not to apply your foot from the gas to the brake I think im on to something but I need a little more feedback...

Look more into it, you might HAVE been at fault and not realized it. When on a bicycle you have to obey the same traffic laws as vehicles, including using hand signals when turning.

Police can usually figure out who was in the wrong.
