the other week my bike got knocked over by a woman in a rental car.....not too much damage, broken front indicator and bent right handlebar. she won't provide her details and wantrs to drive off. police are called, tell her to give me her licence etc which she does. I call the rental company and inform them what happened and the say get quote on damage. I do this, only $350 in damage. she returns rental car and denies whole thing despite me have several witnesses and leaves car and goes home. I am left to foot the bill for the damage as rental car is not liable. after speaking to my solicitor he says that it would be uneconomical for him to pursue this matter as he charges $300 an hour! and i don't have comprehensive insurance on bike. the only thing he suggested was I see a chambers magistrate and try and pursue this through a local court! all for $350!......i can't believe people would do this and not accept responsibility for their actions... any advice on what i should do?
