The chance of getting the guy fired are very high, however and he had me file a complaint to get his ass off the road.
fire the lawyer. Many injuries can take 24 hours before they appear. In Baltimore bus drivers suck especially towards bikers. Our local bike group raises hell if this happens and report ALL accidents to the head of Dept of Transportation. They do hear back from MDOT. Heal fast. I was almost a hood ornament yesterday on an old ladies car. She never saw me even after she buzzed me w/in inches. I live near a retirement community They are almost as bad as bus drivers.
