Seems like a he-said, she-said thing with he trying to milk as much cash as possible.

Any credible witnesses?

Seven years ago. Why now? Sounds fishy.

Seven years ago. Why now? Sounds fishy.

Civil courts have backlogs. Sometimes issues aren't known for months after an accident.

A brother was hit in the head while bicycling on a country road by the side mirror of a big "doollie" truck. He was wearing a quality bike helmet and out "training". He is/was a biker that rode thousands of miles every month. The driver stopped and took him to the hospital. He spent 3 weeks in hospital, but some of the injuries didn't show up for 6 months. He only sued for medical care expenses. The driver had insurance which covered it. Took him 3 yrs before he could work again and 2 yrs a before he could ride a bicycle. His balance was "off". He had terrible headaches for a decade. Today, he rides at least 5x a week between 20 and 100 miles for each ride. He does the The Broadmoor Cycle to the Summit (Pike's Peak) race almost every year, though he missed those 3 yrs.

I have sympathy for anyone injured due to accidents, serious accidents. I have little sympathy for someone trying to grab as much cash as possible over an "accident". Life has accidents.
