Tthe man who died was my father George Smith after losing a 5 week for his life. he died on tuesday may 25th. whilst my father was in a coma in hospital he received a very kind letter wanting to sue him for compensation on behalf of the motorcyclist, obviously this man did not enquire as to how serious my fathers injuries were! how callous can an individual be! yours Denise Churchill.
