On Feb. 6, Adam Molyneaux filed a statement of claim against Zachary Evans-Renaud, a defenceman with the Truro Bearcats, who was convicted of leaving the scene of the March 13, 2011 accident.
Evans-Renaud, 21, was sentenced to serve four months in jail.
Molyneaux is seeking an unspecified amount in damages, including for future loss of income and care costs.
The lawsuit came after Evans-Renaud hit Molyneaux from behind while he was walking along a road on UPEI's campus.
Molyneaux went over the Toyota Corolla's hood and his father found him lying bloodied and hurt by the side of the road.
Evans-Renaud didn't stop to check on Molyneaux and although the windshield was smashed during the collision, Evans-Renaud said he didn't realize he had hit a person.
Those details were all included in the criminal proceedings against Evans-Renaud.
Molyneaux's statement of claim alleged Evans-Renaud was negligent in several ways, including by not driving at the appropriate speed, driving while impaired by alcohol and not taking evasive action when he knew an accident was about to happen.
Because of the accident, Molyneaux suffered injuries, including to his lower back, right knee and right leg, the claim alleged.
Molyneaux alleged his injuries resulted in lost income, future care costs, pain and suffering.
As of Monday Evans-Renaud had yet to respond to the claim.
