Shoot the LAWYER and any others that would even think about taking the case. :Furious:

OMG !!  What is this world coming to?  You make an illegal u-turn and the lawyer gets you off... so then you have the balls to sue?  And all the jerk got was a broken ankle?  There are times when I wish for vigilantes....

If the legal system lets this one go, we should rally and go to DC. It's getting ridiculous what people are gettin away with these days.

Lawyers, they are a problem that needs fixin.   :SmackBottom:  :SmackBottom:

Remember now that although we all have our opinions of lawyers they are simply a mouth-piece. How about the assholes who bring the suits and are looking for the 'free ride' at someone elses expense. (don't yell at me though I'm not a lawyer and rate them with used car salesmen)!

On Sunday I met up with some friends in Danbury for a short ride around western Connecticut. Afterwards, one of the young ladies, a hot redhead riding a pink Sportster, was riding home following a car with a couple in it apparently arguing with eachother. The car started to pull over to the right like it was going to stop then suddenly cut back to the left to make a U-turn. The young lady on the pink Sporty had no choice but to T-bone the car as a result. She received minor injuries and a slight concussion but. For the most part she is OK. The bike didn't fare so well.

 

I wonder how this case will result.

 

Wish I could have seen the face on the driver of the car when he found out the gal on the bike he cut off was an off duty cop.

I went years with some of the family denying even knowing a greasy no account scootertramp.

These days the family got themselves two lawyers in it to be ashamed of and suddenly old scumbag Pop is back on the Christmas card list.

This is why you guy's and gal's need to join your local ABATE chapter to help strenthen laws in your state. You can hit a kid on a tricycle and go to jail for 10 yrs. But the judges will exclaim that you can't see Motorcyclist and give you 6 months probation. We must be Proactive if we plan to make a change. This kind of thing is unacceptible but happens all the time. And without your participation in work toward changing the law this will not happen. It takes alot of work to go to your State house and lobby for these changes but it is the only way this will happen. Contact your local ABATE chapter and become a member or just bitch about it on line meaningless lee. :SmackBottom:

"The driver of a Jeep who made a U-turn into the path of a motorcyclist, killing him, is considering suing the estate of the motorcyclist he killed, according to a newspaper report.

 

The News-Times in Danbury, Connecticut, quoted lawyer Philip Russell as saying he believes his client, Andrew Guazza, 31, of Beacon, New York, has a "valid claim" against the estate of the motorcyclist, Larry Pierce, 58, of New Fairfield, Pennsylvania.

 

On June 8, Guazza pleaded no contest to negligent homicide in Pierce's death, which occurred in 2003 when Guazza made a U-turn in front of Pierce, causing the fatal crash. Pierce was airlifted to a hospital where he was declared dead on arrival.

 

Guazza suffered injuries in the crash, primarily to his ankle.

 

Russell said the suit could be based on an allegation that the motorcyclist "came along unexpectedly at a speed substantially in excess of the posted speed," the News-Times reported."

YOU FOLKS MUST BE READING ANOTHER ACCOUNT OF THIS STORY.

 

NOWHERE IN THE ABOVE TEXT, DOES IT SAY THE DRIVER WAS ***ILLEGALLY*** TURNING.

 

IF IT CAN BE ***PROVEN*** THAT THE BIKER WAS SPEEDING, CAUSING THE ACCIDENT, THEN WHAT THE HELL IS THE ISSUE HERE?

 

IF SOME FUCKHOLE GOING 2OO MPH ON A HAYABUSA DECIDES TO IMPALE HIMSELF ON THE SIDE OF MY WIFE'S TOUAREG, WHILE SHE'S MAKING A ***LEGAL*** U-TURN, YOU'D BETTER DAMN WELL KNOW THAT AS BAD AS WE FEEL ABOUT THE LOSS...HIS ESTATE WILL BE SUED FOR RETRIBUTION (MEDICAL EXPENSES, VEHICULAR DAMAGE...WHAT HAVE YOU...MAYBE EVEN COUNSELLING FOR THE TRAUMATIC EXPERIENCE).

 

 

BEING ON A BIKE DOESN'T PUT YOU ABOVE THE LAW.

 

BEING RICH DOESN'T PUT YOU ABOVE THE LAW.

 

BEING A SPECIFIC "PROTECTED" RACE DOESN'T PUT YOU ABOVE THE LAW.

 

QUICK!!!!

GET SOME LUMBER AND KEROSENE!  I'M GONNA TELL YOU ABOUT SOMEBODY ON THIS FORUM WHO'S INVOLVED IN THE "BLACK MAGIC"!

gimme a break...

Here's the link to that paper's public forum, if you want to say anything to them.  I did ask if they really posted that and suggested that perhaps the state legislature should pass a kill a biker go to jail law.

 

News-Times Forum :1106:

 

And Foosh, you're right.  We don't know what was/was not proven, just that the cager pleaded no contest for the death.  I will say though that legal u turn or not, he has a responsiblility to LOOK.  Unless the biker had his headlight off, he should have been seen - the headlight beam got to that intersection way before the biker, I don't care how fast or slow he was going.  Cager should have been looking.  Period.

I don't know Fooosh but man o man do I have to agree with him on this one!

The story seems to have taken on a life of its own with people adding what they want because they are mad. This would be a perfect example of why we don't legislate on emotion. The story is very sketchy with few details. However, we seem to put the biker on a higher pedestle than anyone else. What if the biker was drunk? Or on drugs? Is it still that car drivers fault? Nobody seems to know the story except for what is posted on this sight. Maybe, just maybe we out to get some facts first. But then again that is what those rotten cops and lawyers are for right?

 And as for "riding out to D.C and protesting" geez man, get a life and a job.

I'm not gonna go on defending some cager that very well may have been at fault.

 

"came along unexpectedly at a speed substantially in excess of the posted speed" may have been a factor, is all I'm sayin'.

 

Daylight?

Blind corner 1/2 mile down the road?

Working headlight on bike?

3-point U-turn that took longer than "flippin' a bitch?

Wheelie that caused headlight to aim skyward?

Who knows?  Not me...

Doubt we'll ever get to know the true facts.

Just the spin the news paper put on it to rile some of us up.

They seemed to do that awfully well.

 

Now get back on your bikes and ride. Go flip off some bitch in a mini van for talking on her cell phone. It'll make you feel better.
