On the 3rd of August I was riding home from work when a driver turned across my path into his driveway at the last moment. The driver of the other car saw me and had stopped but decided to turn across my path into his driveway when I was about 5m away. I was doing the speed limit at the time (80km/h) and got a bit of braking in, but at that point it was too late. My left wrist and leg were broken on impact - my leg in 4 places. I had to have surgery to install a rod in my tibia to stabilize the fracture. The at fault driver was disqualified driving an unregistered and uninsured vehicle which he had fitted with false plates. The driver didn't offer any assistance at the scene nor show any concern or remorse for what he had done and infact I heard him say "all this for a bike" when the emergency services were attending to me. Now before I go into what he was charged with, I'll point out that I haven't been able to work since the accident and I still can't walk due to the severity of the fratures - my wrist has healed but my leg is The driver was charged with the following offenses: - Failing to give way (I feel it should have been a greater charge than this) - Driving while disqualified - Driving an unregistered vehicle - Driving an uninsured vehicle - Attaching false numberplates For all of the above charges he recieved a 6 month suspension (the court squashed his current disqualification) and an $800 fine. I believe the sentence he recieved is an absolute joke and I was wondering if there is a means of appealing the courts decision? Any advice would be appreciated, Cheers, Will.
