The lawyer for a cyclist who died after a bike crash has warned that if people who were involved in the accident were not properly represented, they may have to pay tens of thousands of dollars to the crash victims.
Kim Kardashians lawyer, David Burt, said he could not be certain that the people who died in the crash had not been properly represented but said if it wasn’t they would be in legal limbo for decades.
“We’re not going to have a case,” he said.
He said there were several things that people could do to help.
For example, if you were in a car accident, you could ask for a free copy of the accident report.
If you were involved, you would be able to get a lawyer to come out and say, ‘What’s going on?’
“If you are injured and you’re being charged for an accident, then you would get a bill, and you would have to wait and see if that bill gets paid.
People should not have to worry about this for many years to come.”
Burt said he had spoken to the families of the cyclist who was killed.
A spokeswoman for the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads said there had been no change in the law to ensure people involved in a bike accident were properly represented.
Queensland’s Law Reform Commission said the law should be changed to allow for a defence of care.
The Law Reform Commissions report on the case of cyclist Matthew Hutton said the crash caused significant damage to the cyclist’s life and that the crash could have been prevented had it been properly advised.
It said the driver had failed to stop at the intersection where Hutton was struck and did not properly apply the lights.
There were numerous red lights at the time of the crash, which the accident victim said were not red.
They did not change the speed of the vehicle, but the driver did not stop and drove for several kilometres before turning into the median, the report said.
Burt had told the ABC earlier this year that the accident happened as Hutton and another rider were heading down the M6 on a bicycle.
Burt, who had been involved in dozens of other crashes, was a lawyer at the moment of the death of cyclist Richard Hutton in Brisbane’s west on March 29, 2017.
Matthew Hutton’s lawyer, Stephen Burt says there are numerous red and white lights on the M8.
(ABC News: Paul Gourley) “I’ve been in thousands of motor vehicle accidents, I know that there are red and yellow lights, I’ve had a driver who was not paying attention, who didn’t understand the red and blue lights,” he told the Brisbane Times in March.
On March 26, the Brisbane City Council passed an emergency ordinance that would require all cyclists on the road to stop and remain stopped until all red and red lights have changed.
Cyclist Richard Huth, who was also on the same bicycle, was killed in the collision.
According to a statement by the Brisbane-based Queensland Law Reform Authority, a person has the right to be injured or killed in a motor vehicle accident.
That means that they have the right not to be involved in an accident.
If a person is injured or dies in an automobile accident, they have an obligation to pay for the cost of the collision and for the medical and legal care that they need, as well as the cost and expenses of any other related recovery and damages.
Lawyer Stephen Burett says he has had dozens of crashes in Brisbane.
“(The) red lights, the red, the blue lights, it’s the most dangerous part of the road.
You can’t see it and you can’t know where you’re going and what you’re about to do,” he explained.
Mr Burt said a person could not simply walk up to a cyclist and say ‘Hey, can you help me?’
“You have to be there.
You’ve got to be a part of it,” he added.
Police are investigating the crash and have requested that the public not approach cyclists or stop to look at them.
