I think this is outrageous and unnecessary legal action. I understand that an incident took place and that the party in question suffered an injury as a result. However this is either a) really bad luck or b) inappropriate riding behaviour on the part of the cyclist: The poor child reacted in an inexperienced manner, but that is what kids do. To say "But people are responsible for their actions" is just downright shameless - it is not as if this was a case of kids trying deliberately to knock people off their bikes.
That is my opinion at least.
Get a bicycle. You will certainly not regret it, if you live.
