What a jerk, it was obviously an accident, at least you tried to help him
While I agree that it was good of OP to get out and try to help the cyclist, and that the cyclist was a jerk, how can you possibly know whether it was obvious that it was an accident or not? We have no real details, and just because the post tells us it was an accident, that doesn't actually prove that it was, or that the cyclist could tell that it was. How do you know what it looked like?
He was just trying to teach you a lesson. In the worst way possible.
#30 I'm a personal injury paralegal in London. I assure you, we DO sue like morons where OP is from. I have literally seen a client sit and accept advice from someone that their claim is worth between £10,000 - £12,000 and then turn around and say they will claim professional negligence from my firm if they get less than £50,000.
This is why I hate cyclists. He should be grateful you tried to help. What an arse.
Well, OP did just run him over, so I can understand him being pissed off. Really, I can't figure out if it's worse to get punched in the face or to have hitting a cyclist on your driving record. Maybe he thought he was doing OP a favor by not calling the cops. Although I'm not sure I believe this FML. I got hit by a car once when I was riding my bike. I was crossing the road. I thought the driver had seen me, but he started inching forward from a stop when I was in front of him. I was badly bruised, but I was able to hop back up and assure the driver I was alright. My bike, on the other hand, had a twisted frame and bent wheels. I couldn't ride it anymore. I don't see how this guy could have hopped back on his bike and ridden away, even if the car just tapped him. That's several thousand pounds on the bike, even if it's just a light tap, and bikes aren't designed for that kind of impact. I'll say this though: if this is true, that is one resilient cyclist!
You hate cyclists because one guy got angry at being in an accident? I don't condone his behaviour but don't judge a whole group of people on the actions of a few. That's stupid and (if you're annoyed with certain cyclists because they assume all drivers are rude, idiots) just as bad.
