Police chase (opposite from earlier thread)
This chase the officer was struck while chasing BG.Does the officer have the same "rights" to sue the BG for hospital bills,lack of work etc?Or is this a case the good guy just have to do the best he can?

I wouldn't doubt there will be a lawsuit.

Scary. I can't imagine running across the highway at 11 PM in the dark uniforms most sheriff's deputies wear. I'm not real surprised the driver didn't see him.
Earlier, at about 11:20 p.m., Smith called 911 from his girlfriend’s home to report the accident.

He was arrested and then transported to the scene of the hit-and-run, remaining in the back of a State Police car while technicians gathered and photographed evidence.

The sister of Smith’s girlfriend answered a phone call placed to the home early Friday. She refused to identify the SUV driver. “What business of yours is it?” she asked.
I wonder if Smith is covering for his girlfriend. Do you suppose this why it was a hit and run?

This is all the bad guy's fault, IMO. I hope he does get sued, but I doubt he'd have the money to pay for the unfortunate officer's injuries.
