I was driving in a two-way two-lane road. There was a cyclist in front of my car. I slowed the speed down to 10 and tried to avoid him. At that time I thougt I shouldn't cross the double solid yellow line since it is not allwed, so I drove along the yellow line very slowly. Unfortunately, the side mirror still hit the handlebar and the cyclist fell down. I immediately stopped the car. He wore the helmet and gloves for protection. He told to me and the police it was OK. There was no blood, I just saw some scratches and bruises on his knees. The police made a report and said this was a MVA minor. But after almost half a year, my adjuster told me that this man's lawyer wants compensation for him. I wonder how serious it is? Am I all at fault?
