    Hmmm, donít know about the insurer paying. Isnít there something in an insurance contract about never admitting liability?

    Geez, I feel sorry for Alister. Not only does he have to live with the guilt of one of his best mates dying, but this keeps going and going. Bundys a small town, this must be hard on him, too. Iíve done a lot of dumb shit that couldíve gone bad (had a few beers and decided to go van surfing on a Bedford, and then driving while my equally hammered mate had a go) just one of many, many examples. This couldíve easily been me, or I hazard a guess a few people on here.

    Yeah itís fucked, something that 99/100 times would have been fine ended in a good mates death. Common sense would say we see it for what it is, but unfortunately thatís not the world we live in...

    Part of me really detests relatives suing in situations like this but you dont know the circumstances. Plenty of people sue others they dont want to but need to.
    Do sympathise with the driver though, all him and his mates wanted to do was to have some fun and I wouldn't be surprised if the guy has woken up on a few days wanting to jump off a bridge.

    That's what they ask you to do so they have a reasonable shot at defending the case, don't think it can stop them insuring you.

    Agree with all sentiments above. Itís shit. And Iíve been in a similar situation where CTP paid out

    EDIT- Was a good mate that got injured not me. Now heís alienated from the friends group for 10 years because his parents insisted on legal action and didnít believe their son could possibly do something remotely risky

    The defense will certainly use that to mitigate their exposure and total payout deeming it a contributory factor.. But I suspect they will still be throwing some $$$ to them.
    Because there will be other factors - eg... They will no doubt argue that there were Police / Security etc within the grounds and they will argue that probably not one of them stopped any vehicle from having passengers riding unrestrained, They can show footage from many years previous that shows that exact behavior being "acceptable" etc... just the way that shit works..

    Shit gets real murky here.. but I honestly subscribe to the belief that sometimes shit happens. I was a key witness in the coroners inquest to the guys death at the spring nats under the truck a while back. Without my footage the truck driver was in real trouble .. I'm glad I gave my evidence, the truckie lives with what happened every day.

    I felt bad for the family still.

    It's not like the family/partner of the dead guy is suing the actual driver, just the insurance company. Maybe the rule about being illegal to ride in/on backs of utes doesn't apply on private property like EPIC (though EPIC is owned by govt so maybe it counts as a public area?)

    There was a sort of comparitive case a couple of years back where two mates were riding their push bikes to work when one of them ran over a lump of wood and crashed and subsequently was run over by a car. The guy lived but as expected had pretty serious injuries and ended up suing his mate's insurance company (insurance through cycling cub I think?) and got a multi-million dollar payout, reasoning behind the legal action was his mate who was riding in front should of pointed out the lump of wood. Don't know if they are still mates.

    If it's ctp it covers injured people no matter what you are doing, even if you stole the car. The cover for permanent injuries to the driver might not apply if you were breaking the law, drink driving, stolen car etc.

    In the ACT you have to take civil action to get compensation through CTP. A colleague who was a passenger in a car crash and was injured , is going through it right now. It's fucking stupid.

    The driver was from Bundaberg, , assuming the car had rego would have thought it would go thru the QLD system.

    This is obviously assuming all your AUX outputs are doing something. Ie idle control, and the other does water spray, and the other updates your Instagram automatically etc.
