Good day po. I badly need help from you guys regarding my case. last sunday, january 6, 2013, I was driving my motorcycle with my two sisters when a kid from our neighborhood ran towards us. we have a rough road going to our house so its really impossible to speed up. I did not bump the kid but the father insisted that I have. I, together wit my sisters, fell from the motorcycle due to my efforts to evade the kid. i steered left and braked, and my wheel slipped and we fell. my left shoulders, hips, thighs and knees were bruised and i attained a knee injury while the kid only scraped his knee.
Now, the father filed a case in our barangay against me accusing me of bumping his child. he also said that he failed to report to work for several days because of the incident and has paid hospital bills for his kid.
What is my defense in this case? how can i prove that i did not bump the child? Please enlighten. it would be of great help for me. Thank you
