on the 28th of Aug this week a lady pulled out in front of me and a friend trying to make it through the lights - fully skipped a red light. (See video - White BMW)
In the process, she caused the gentlemen in front of me to stop abruptly which then had a knock-on effect causing me to come off the front of my handlebars.
I landed on my shoulder and knee injuring both (can't walk or lift my arm), cracked my helmet and sustained some grazes to me left leg and shoulder.
I was wondering what my legal rights are in a situation like this? I really just want my expenses covered (ie. cracked helmet and physio appointment).

Talk to Leigh Day. They may be able to help. My layman's knowledge would lead me to believe that you probably don't have a legal case against her. But I'm sure that the police would like to see that footage of her jumping a red light and leaving the scene of an accident. You probably won't get any money from her, but please report this to the police, at the very least.
