Q: If a vehicle is standing that got hit by another car can I sue the driver of the standing vehicle also
If a vehicle was stopped on a roadway and ANY of the vehicle remained on the roadway, it constituted a hazard to other vehicles on the roadway and it is liable for ALL property damage and injury that results, no matter how many vehicles are involved. If the stopped car caused the car that hit you to lose control, the stopped car is responsible for that car and its passengers as well as any cars that the car which lost control may hit, like yours.
If you were injured, you NEED a personal injury attorney. If you were not injured, your insurance company will take care of it.
