the hgv driver admited fault at the scene to the attending officer. was it right to move the vehicle and agrevate potential injuries.
to clarify should the off duty officer used his authority to move the vehicle at all. i would have thought the medics should have assesed first. the lorry wasnt able to be removed from the scene until the attending officer had advice from the hospital that our baby was ok, my wife had to have a 20 minute contiuous trace of our baby before the hospital could advise the police. the hospital told us this was a statutary requiremant in an rtc with a pregnant lady.
Yes I would report this to the Police and Solicitor.
But in reality if you have been hit in the rear AND the driver admitted it to the Officer then it will not make any difference to laibility
But you should report it yes
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
is the officer that is off duty and used his postion as a police man to take charge liable for putting my wife in further danger when he moved her car when the full extent of her injuries were unclear as the medics had not yet arrived.
