I was wondering what the “expectation” was for assisting people who are sustain injuries in a traffic accident. I’ve always thought there was a reasonable moral responsibility to help if there’s a problem (eg; little guy on motorbike wiped out by taxi driver). Is it so different here?
Too often, too many people simply stand around gaping at the “little guy” who, broken and bruised, must pick up his bike (and the various parts of him which are spread across the road) and quickly dust himself off or risk being completely snotted by the backed-up traffic behind. It’s an appalling and perverse form of entertainment!
I too have seen a few “hit and runs”, but have been warned by locals to especially avoid offering help in these situations, as there’s an even greater risk of a victim accusing a bystander of responsibility.
I’d like to help, but not if there’s finger-pointing and legal trouble. I guess there are many who share my frustration, especially those who have been injured while driving, but I’m particularly interested in the legal aspect. So what’s up?
