    I am a lawyer and I'm not sue happy. Looks like you will not have medical bills. The school punished him. Maybe not enough, but he was punished. The authorities (beyond the school) should be notified, but beyond that, if it were me, I would not pursue a lawsuit....or revenge. I would avoid this guy and move on. Maybe it's been to long since high school, but I would not let that guy's idiocy control my life or drive me to do something that may backfire.

    I TOTALLY DISAGREE!!
    If something isn't done about this kid (either by suing him or pressing criminal charges), he will get a clear message that what he did isn't that big of a deal, & he will do it again to another kid & maybe worse the next time!!!

    Again, You should talk to a good lawyer & the police!

    Once when I was in college a football player (6'4", 250 lb, mind of a 12 y.o.) broke my leg accidentally just messing around. This case wasn't as deliberate as yours but still painful. I did nothing and have since outlived him. The end result is the same and I don't have to go to jail. As long as the fool doesn't hassle you again let it go. There is nothing to be gained by carrying grudges and his behavior will catch up with him eventually. Good luck!

    I have to disagree. When people like this have their behavior catch up with them, it is normally because they ran upon someone who won't take their crap and act defenseless. I agree that carrying grudges is not healthy and going to jail certainly isn't viable, but turning your back and letting him get away to do it to someone else before anyone does anything is wrong. The authorities should have most definately been notified and charges pressed. That's the way the world works, now. You can't just meet up with him in the parking lot and take care of it like the good ole days. I will bet you that if you did anything to physically retaliate, you will have authorities knocking on your door because he or his parents called them and reported you. And just so you know, just because he is a large fellow and you may be smaller doesn't mean that you will loose. Usually, just standing up for yourself is enough to make people like this leave you alone.

    You should press charges get a new motor and bike and get a good one. If you have some older friends that may not know this kid..tell them and im sure they will let this kid know whats up..(after you get your new bike and motor of course)

    Glad things worked out for you...I imagine he is getting plenty of flack from his peers at school and feels pretty stupid. It seemed to me to be a prank gone very wrong not an attack on you personally. We all do pretty dumb stuff without thinking. Being older has it's advantages you move slower so you catch em b4 they get out more.

    Good deal. I'm h*ll on some one like that because they try to get away with more the next time.
    Glad it worked out. I'm sure between his family and as was mentioned his friends who put the whoop to his as a hero.

    See you in Sudbury at the meet?

    Steve.

    BikeguyJoe is right retaliation in an illegal way isnt right, the consequences can be worse than the original act. I just hate idiots and when I was younger we settled things differently. Today its a different world. Im not sue happy but when some ones negligence costs you dearly you need to look out for your self. I dont believe in paying for others mistakes.

    dude soooooo sorry to hear of this, I absolutely HATE bullys! I got picked on a lot in school, so I know how ruff it can be speaking up against kids like that bloke, but if you don't speak to an official about this, then the bully wins.... don't give him the pleasure
