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, ***** ***** 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, ***** ***** 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.
