recommendations for third party advice

By astrojax - 26 April 2009 29

I’ve been quiet on this forum for the past week having been a stationary cyclist collected by a moving car last monday evening – my only foray onto the roads in a cyclepath trip home from near the gallery, so don’t go there…  

As a consequence I have a lot of blurred vision (apologies now for the typos to come), a bit of bark off on knees, hips, head and stuff, and nine fractured ribs (twelve fractures in all) – ouch.  

Just out of hospital this afternoon…anyway, not here to discuss the incident [as anyway i have no recollection and above ‘facts’ come from hospital and police advice] but rather just to see if anyone has enjoyed some good experiences with third party solicitors in the recent past they might care to recommend.  

Shan’t be up to reading replies closely for a while (reading – looking at anything – is hard with this blurred vision) but would be keen to hear of your experiences.

What’s Your opinion?

Astro, look after yourself. How carefully did the hospital investigate your head injury? RCH has been known to under-investigate. About four years ago a dude thought he was OK after a cycle injury and wasn’t. Please go to a private specialist and don’t rely on the hospital (though I endorse their services totally in most situations … )

Astro,

I am currently dealing with the guys at Stacks/Snedden Hall and Gallop… yet to have issues with them, but also yet to have my claim settled as my injuries are still persistent. But I do suggest calling around a few.. most have no win/no fee deal.

All the best mate… Hope your feeling better and back on your feet soon.

Ouch!!! Did the driver cop a neg driving or similar charge?

Nosey 9:07 pm 26 Apr 09

While I am still feeling a tad stupid I would like to add that I also hope the person/s who caused your damage did in fact stop to assist.

About two years ago a friend was hit while on her bike and she subsequently suffered some nasty, albeit non life threatening injuries.

The driver did not stop and she was left to assist herself.

She no longer rides and does not seem interested in ever riding again.

While I am all for you claiming compensation, my main hope is that you get back on the bike ASAP.

Good luck.

No.. not now.

Again…sorry.

Nosey 8:55 pm 26 Apr 09

Unfortunately my comment was not taken as tongue in cheek.

In now way as a fellow cyclist would I want anyone to meet harm in any way.

Apologies for not being crystal clear with my stupidly inconsiderate and unfunny comment.

I thought with the regularity of astrojax’s history of comments it would have been taken in jest.

there are lots of solicitors who do personal injury stuff or negligence as “no win, no fee” so look them up and give them a go

Thumper 8:01 pm 26 Apr 09

Geez, get well asap….

Sorry to hear about the crash. I hope the driver was brave enough to stop and assist?

You need to see a personal injury solicitor ASAP. David Chen from EBA Lawyers is someone I used to work with, he’s very good.

good on ya nosey, the riot has lost none of its inanity then..

ta the kind words all other – shall give you a call granny and say more in person – very sweet ; )

I was sure that Nosey must have been a friend of Astrojax and was just taking the p*ss.

If Nosey isn’t then ?!?!? I’m lost for words!!

Sounds like rotten luck astrojax. Hope you make a full recovery.

Then why nearly three paragraphs to begin with?

Astro, don’t have any recommendations but just had to say how glad I am that you’re still in the world and to let you know I’ll be thinking of you. Are you going to be ok for shopping, meals, etc? I can be contacted on 0414 880 784 if you need a little help from your friends. Get well, ok?

Love,
Granny
