someone allegedly got into a bicycle on bicycle accident in front of my house and is now suing me. this individual is claiming my bushes caused the accident because the bushes are over the 3ft max limit that the town has. however, she has no witnesses except for her husband. she doesn't know who hit her, didn't get her name even though the cyclist walked her home!!!she has not seen this other cyclist after. she went to the hospital a day later. i was served with papers about 6 months later. i dont have liability insurance. it has been a few years already and i cannot believe this is going to trial. i cannot afford an attorney and it looks like i will need to get one anyway since it is probably going to trial.
Violation of a law or regulation that has as its purpose the type of harm that occurred is a very real and potent element of a successful personal injury suit. The injured party and the husband are two witnesses. I am sure someone photographed, measured, and otherwise preserved the evidence of the growth and probably did angle measurements, etc. You say you have no hazard insurance. You will have to fund your defense and any damages against you out of pocket.
