OP I hope you heal quickly.
As for the dealership threatening to sue? I call bull. They should have insurance for test-driving vehicles for *exactly* this reason. Don't let them bully you into paying, just so they can avoid an increase in their insurance premiums.

No, they are not.

First, they have insurance to cover that -- the car is still their property during the test drive. Secondly, the other driver is at fault and is the one liable for the accident.

I'm sorry the crash damaged your ability to tell the truth.

The hell with the dealership. They have insurance and I would assume the person that hit you does too. As long as the police report shows you're not at fault it's all good. (Except for the broken bones)

Right......... and a hospital would NEVER over charge you, cops are ALWAYS kind and courteous and no stores has EVER gouged prices during a disaster. We all live in a Disney fairy tale you're soooo right

Not sure where you live but dealer better check themselves they are responsible for carrying insurance here in the US it is you that can sue if your medical bills, etc are not covered by their insurance. that is why they have dealer plates to put on cars for test drives.

Here in Michigan, a no fault state, your own car insurance would have to cover the medical bills. I had a home care client that had b een hit by a truck. His mother did not have a car at the time and no insurance. They were staying with his grandfather. His insurance had to cover his medical. Weird eh?

For those saying he is lying -

Remember this is a car dealership we're talking about. They could well be crooked AF and just trying to blackmail money out of him. This wouldn't even be unusual behavior when it comes to car dealerships, I still recall a story about a dealership that where 6 salesmen followed an old man to his home and robbed him of $70,000+ in Seattle.
