    We can expect that attorney Paweł K. will be charged with disciplinary offenses for violating the rules of attorney’s ethics, especially in the context of his proper conduct in private life,’ we heard from the spokesperson of the Regional Council of the Bar in Łódź, attorney Anna Mrożewska. It’s about the recent social media activity of attorney Paweł K. and the Sunday accident he was involved in. Two women did not survive the collision.

    An unfortunate collision of an Audi and a Mercedes occurred on provincial road 595 on Sunday before 6 pm on the Barczewo-Jeziorany section. The accident involved four adults and a four-year-old boy. The collision killed two women, ages 53 and 67, who were driving an Audi. The child traveling in the other car was transported to the hospital.


    After the accident, the driver of the shattered Mercedes spoke out on social media. Paweł K., a lawyer from Łódź, argued that people should buy newer and safer cars. He called the Audi of the victims of the tragedy near Barczewo a “coffin on wheels.” According to the lawyer, among other things, “that’s why these women died.” The man deleted the Instagram “story”, but Jan Śpiewak managed to save it.

    The NRA (Supreme Bar Council – editor’s note) president also admitted that he was humanly sorry and that K.’s words should not have been said at all.  – I apologize for them and offer my condolences to the families of the victims of this tragedy,” Rosati told us.




    In a statement posted on social media last night, attorney Paweł K. asserted, “it was never my intention to shift the blame for causing this accident onto the fatalities who were traveling in an older generation car.”  He assured us that he is praying for the accident victims, their families, and loved ones.
