Had an accident? Letter of Demand template.

Postby The 2nd Womble » Wed Sep 25, 2013 1:32 pm

Andrew McKenzie from Maurice Blackburn sent through a draft precedent letter of demand for cyclists to use as a template in case of an accident. I posted this for Safe Cycling Australia fb supporters and it'll also be on the website later today.
MB tought you may appreciate not having to draft the letter from scratch.

Excellent idea :) . Can I suggest you also post a link to the above in Oxford's "Template for Reporting Incidents to Police" thread, since it's related?

There's already more stickies in Safety & Advocay than we usually try and stick to (edit: pun unintentional). If oxford is happy to do so, I will edit a link to this thread in the OP of the sticky mentioned above. Just get oxford to shoot me a pm.

Or perhaps a single sticky thread containing all the current stickies thread links? I've seen that done before in other forums and it seems to work ok.

Sadly Oxford was in a serious motor vehicle accident

Anyone interested in the motorbike accident, I kept a journal in the form of a Google document once I left the Intensive Care Unit and had access to a computer and the internet:

I like the subtle edit im_no_pro has done, but perhaps it is time to consolidate them into one document - if you have had an accident, the last thing you want to be doing is hunting through threads trying to figure out what you should do
