    not sure why this is in the news, id say it is pretty common

    i am 10 months into a civil case against a driver who hit me... i have received judgement in my favour, now awaiting payment of the large settlement amount (almost twice what this person was going for).

    I went straight to the insurance company and had 7K within 5 days

    *lots of phone calls and emails though one to the insurance ombudsman, I had nothing better to do anyway as i was banged up a bit.

    hmm, article seemed to suggest it was a rare occurence. maybe coz most the fucking drivers don't stop.

    glad you guys have managed to get the appropriate compensation though

    wouldn't be too surprised to hear that story had it's origins in Maurice Blackburn's media liaison office.

    lucky there was insurance cover, the number of uninsured drivers getting around is absolutely massive

    Hard not to stop when you have gone through the windscreen and you bike ends up "inside" a 7-eleven.
