My pal Thoughtful reflections wrote about a guy on a bike hit by a car and a train one day....got me thinking:
I was hit by a car when I was 14 and biking lawfully up the street---a car pulled across traffic, into my lane, and I smashed into the side and flew up onto the car hood and smashed the windshield with my head and passed out briefly and came to lying on the car--and it was all in FRONT of two police officers. I had a concussion etc, but was otherwise OK, but can you believe the woman who hit me sued me for the broken windshield and dented bodywork???? We countersued and won but never would have sued if she hadn't given us the idea.....now there's stupidity!
(the law is on the side of a pedestrian when hit by a car 99% of the time----esp. when witnessed by 2 cops!!!)
