Can I make a claim against a driver of a car who did not hit me, but made me have an accident while walking or on a bike?

One situation that we hear about pretty often with bicycles is there’s been an accident. The bicycle went down. The person feel off the bicycle, but it was caused by a car, but the car never hit the bicycle. The car never actually hit the person on the bicycle. Does that mean that the driver of the car is not at fault? No, it doesn’t mean the driver of the car isn’t at fault. There could be all kinds of situations where the driver of the car doesn’t actually run over the person on the bicycle, but they still caused the accident. If they caused the accident, then they’re going to be held accountable under the law for whatever harm they caused.
