Re: Schumacher critical

Sounds like his condition is very serious.
Seems that when it happened he was lucid enough to talk to his rescuers and this lead to some errors in the first news reports that the accident was not serious.
A sober reminder that those involved in any accident need to be checked out by medical staff or kept under observation for  the following 24 hours.
Just hope he makes it ok with no permanent problems.

Re: Schumacher critical

I feel very sorry that Schumacher has suffered an accident like this, and wish him a speedy recovery.
But, the evening BBC news covered this as the top story taking some eight minutes of the programme, just a little OTT I feel.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Schumacher critical

I read that Michael Schumacher is getting sued for some motorbike crash before his tragic accident last year. Talk about kicking a man when he is down. I am sure it could of waited!!

Re: Schumacher critical

@M Steve, got to agree with you on that one. You would have thought someone would have advised delaying any action.

Re: Schumacher critical

It appears to be the only way the motorcyclist can get his costs

After being hit by Schumacher, who was driving a rented Audi A4, the motorcyclist fell to the ground and fractured his wrist. The claim he has filed covers the cost of the injury, as well as the damage to his clothing, watch, bike and helmet.
According to the accident report issued by the local police in Bormujos, the main cause of the crash was a violation of driving laws by the driver of the Audi A4. The report adds that a secondary cause was deficient lighting of the stretch of road in question.
The motorcyclist was required to press charges in order to obtain compensation because minor cases of reckless driving are only prosecuted in Spain where the victim has filed a complaint.
A trial will only take place if insurers contest the claim but they are not expected to do so.
