Hello, this is Jim and I am a dual-qualified lawyer (UK and Republic of Ireland) and happy to help you today.
Can you give further details - are they talking about a road traffic offence on your part or is it more about an accident claim?
Hi, this is not live chat so there may be delays with a response.
I can check your proposed statement if you would like.
Thanks, you just need to reply to them with your recollection of events (to the best of your knowledge).
You do not need a lawyer to do this - they just need to hear it from you with what happened.
Thanks, that reply is fine - you were on a zebra crossing and the driver would have failed to notice or they drove too fast - breach of the Highway Code. You can say that you checked it was clear before crossing and the driver simply didn't stop (but as I say, this has to come from you and it is your recollection of events). There is a very high burden on a driver of a vehicle versus a pedestrian because they are driving a vehicle which can cause death or serious injury.
I do not see a problem with what you have already written.
Let me know if I can assist with this further.
