Ask a Traffic Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, how are you? Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** am a solicitor and I will be assisting you today. Please note there may be delays in responding as I am away helping other customers but I will get back to you as soon as I can. I may also need to ask you some clarifying questions to determine the legal position.
Thanks for your message. Can you describe the accident circumstances?
Ok thanks for explaining. Unfortunately pulling from a minor into a major would be a fault claim, even if you were stationary as you would have affected the movement of the motor bike. If you are charged with driving without due care and attention it would be a £100 and 3 points. I’m sorry to say. Report it to your insurance and they will deal with the liability aspect.
Yes unfortunately. Speed will not be relevant to liability in a road traffic accident.
I understand and it is a dispute that your insurance will need to sort out if you wish to dispute it. But from my experience dealing with these claims, it is likely more than not, would be found to be at fault. I have a duty to be honest with you and it may not be the answer you want but it my honest opinion.
Not really unless you already have points on your licence. The standard charge for without due care and consideration is as ecpleiabove. But there are severities which from what you have said should not attract more points or disqualification
Unfortunately it does still count as you were pulling from a minor into a major. If you were behind the line before turning you would have more of a liability argument.
Yes if the position of the car was questionable then yes.
It can help assist and determine precisely who the at fault party is so yes it is worth getting.
Yes absolutely. You have cause to do so
Hello, just following up on this to ensure you're satisfied with what you need to do. Please let me know if you need me to clarify anything or if you have any additional questions. I am happy to help. All the best, John
You will need to raise a complaint directly to the police if you believe they have been racist. If you wish to take court action, you will need to instruct a law firm which you can access here https://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk/ All the best.
If he is claiming for injury he will report the matter to his insurer's / solicitors who will be in touch with your own insurers to start a claim. Liability will be reviewed, and if accepted by your insurers then a payout will eventually be made.
