Re: Should I Fight This Case
That makes it sound like simply taking that vehicle onto the public roadways, regardless of other driving behavior, was careless! However, I still have to call BS on the "30 to 40 mph." Unless you were driving on an extremely steep slope or had the vehicle grossly overloaded with overhead cargo or something similarly unusual, the crash you describe simply would not happen at that low of a speed. I'd love to see the collision report with a diagram showing the length and direction of skid marks, etc.
You should definitely consult an attorney, but I can see absolutely no defense from anything you have posted.
Behind the badge is a person. Behind the person is an ego. This is as it should be, person at the center and ego to the back.
