Hi you lot.
I know this has been on the site before - but a quick search through the forums using the word lawyer produced a plethora of hits that weren't really relevant... So I'm hoping someone with their finger more on the pulse than me can help.
I got this email at work today, the list is our workplace BUG.
Hoping you can help, especially with the lawyer bit - it looks like they've already done the police report and (surprisingly) it sounds like the police were unhelpful. (even though there were a couple of beautifully decked out, and fit looking bike cops on swanky Scott FS MTB's at the breakfast this morning)
I have used this list with out authorisation – but for a good cause. One of our colleges was hit by a car who turned left across his path. Not only did the police refuse to charge the driver (they didn’t even attend the scene) but the insurance company is chasing him for damages.
The police told him that because the accident occurred at an intersection and the bike path was not marked across the intersection, he was at fault because he hit the car.
Does any one know a good bicycle aware lawyer who specialises in this sort of case?
