If those things were done then it would help your case a lot. If a standard crash report was completed then you don't have much to work with, becuase it would be lacking the photos and scaled diagram.
I don't believe an agency has done an investigation. We're still reeling from the loss of my dad and we're starting to move forward now that the funeral was done and over with. We haven't notified the police of his death just yet. We're going to go to the Pasadena Police Department tomorrow and do just that.

The accident was treated as an extremely minor accident at the time. See, my dad walked away from it. He got up from the accident and the police officer brought him home. My dad's so stubborn that he wouldn't let them take him to the hospital as a precaution. I wish he did but he didn't.

He died as a result of his injuries from the accident, not the accident itself. See, he punctured his lung in the accident. Had 4 broken ribs. We took him to the hospital the following morning. He was fine and placed on some respiratory thing to assist him in his breathing. Then about four days later, he coughed and that perforated his colon and it all went downhill from there. The doctors called it a split. His body was hurting and instead of coughing from his lungs, he started coughing from his intestines.

You pose an interesting perspective that just may hurt my case. I have to consider all ends from this point on. Every little bit helps. No matter which side it favors.

Forget that! Although, it's not easy riding in my parent's neighborhood. I'm not trying to single an ethnic group out so please don't misunderstand my intentions here. My parents live in a predominantly mexican area now. Red Bluff and Thomas. They just don't tie their dogs up too well.

The score as of right now is....

Me - 10
Dog - 0
Cat - 1

Them dummies can't help but chase me everytime I ride through the neighborhood.

Yes, a cat got the best of me once. Don't ask.

I admit. I don't like dogs. So I don't try too hard to get out of the way. Sometimes I have to aim for them too in order to keep from dropping my bike. It's just better to run over them at the right angle rather than to hit them at an awkward angle. And you guys know this!!!!

! That feels so much better. I have a of a time trying to 'splain myself to my parents' neighbors.

I saw you turn into my dog!

But I had to...

I'm calling the police!

Ma'am, I'm sorry. Believe me! It was not intentional. I had to turn into him.

Gah! So I just run over and keep on going.

Please away!

That wasn't intended to be sexist.

Posting here has actually made me feel tons better about my dad even though I wasn't really too shook up about it. I'm a realist. I'm a motorcycle rider. I know that my next ride could be my last. It's how I treat my motorcycles. Keep on whoring away.

I'm glad that I could serve a higher purpose. I totally concur.....I believe that all people should approach a motorcycle, or any other vehicle, as if it may be their last ride. if you're aware of your immortality, it makes you a better driver.

there is a Lawyer in Beaumont that owns Cowboy HD and Cowboy Honda. His name is Walter Umphrey. I think that is the largest law firm in Texas.

Now, I agree. I'll be staying away from the dime a dozen lawyers. The problem that I'm having is that I think the attorney listings in the yellow pages are insanely thick. It would take me a year to research those guys! This is a popular motorcycle forum and I'm sure someone here has advice.

My insurance company has nothing to gain or lose because it was liability only. They'd lose 50 bucks by giving him a new tire. It's all about convience for them. As for the other drivers' insurance company. Of course, they don't want to pay. My dad was on life support for a good three weeks before he passed. He almost died over and over and over and over and over before he finally did. His medical bills stand at over half a million right now and there will be more coming in. Now, no worries! We have medical insurance and we're going to sic our medical insurance company on the other driver.

This is about honor. The man ran a stop sign. I know it. He knows it. How dare he hit us up for money while my dad's on life support. How dare he. His tire wasn't flat. It was scuffed. My dad's body scuffed that tire, not the motorcycle. Own up to it. He refused. So we're going to sic the big dogs on him and we need all the help we can get. Advice.

I've spoken to four lawyers already and everyone of them has said that our case is an open and shut case. The thing is.... we want to take him to the cleaners. on my dad's honor? That's okay. We'll enjoy turning his house into a crack house with his wife leading customers in stopping by his every one of his daughters' room along the way. (I don't know if he has any daughters or even a wife. This is meant out of rhetoric.)

Can't you tell? I'm angry.:eh: Sorry.

Thanks for the well wishes but that's not what I really want here. My dad doesn't want people feeling sorry for him. He would want us to keep on riding. What I really want is personal experience/advice with using a motorcycle lawyer.

I think that you need to kill the son of a and get it over with
