waste of Jag....
waste of Jag....
complained of back pain?
they were probaby sitting on the seatbelt clip [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
all that for helping someone out
how does he stand with insurance ? IE will they have paid out or said its not our fault.
How the hell would you explain this to your Insurance .....i agree poor sod think you are doing the right thing by helping out
He wont do that again in a hurry
Poor fella - surely there would have been some way of getting them out of the car without cutting the roof off? Not as if they were trapped by accident damage, looks like wanton destruction!!
What a shame, thats what happens when u help!
that was so un nessesary. That person was obviously fit enough to walk to the car in the first place so no broken neck or back there.
I bet they wouldnt have done that if the guy was driving a wee ford fiesta. They prob done it cause the guy was drving a jag.
If they even suggested doing that to my car i would have dragged the person out of my car by there short and curlies.
I think you'll find they would regardless of car, you can get swelling etc. after the event that can be deadly if not looked after in the right way!
To be honest, he had no right to move the casualty anyway. He has now left himself open to all sorts of claims...even the casualty suing HIM for the back pain/troubles as he was being kind helping. I know it sounds wrong, but with the UK following the USA suit of suing everyone and anyone for any reason they can.
I'm a fire fighter, and to be honest, just leave the casualty there..unless the car is at risk of buring / exploding....even then, i'd be asking if i would want to go near that risk zone?
Don't get me wrong, i do feel sorry for the guy...he was trying to do a good deed...
Poor guy , really feel for him!
so is the moral of the story DONT stop at a accident !!!! ???
Stopping and helping is fine. Just NEVER move the victim, except as stated above when there is a higher risk of the person burning to death. If you move someone you could be causing more damage.
