Damn bro... at least its only a finger, thats good it could have been alot worse... The bike doesnt look to clever but if its his fault the insurance will pay out and it can all be replaced. As long as your OK its all good...

from what you said the car driver would be in fault i assume, so hopefully through insurance your bike will get sorted.
But the main this is your'e still here and although your injuries look painful hopefully you can make a full recovery from them mate. Smile

Aye Caramba What a Face

Barry hope you heal up soon mate.

I know that junction well, and it's always busy.

Hope the insurance sort out doesn't drag...Do you have witnesses bar your mate?

Want to see you out on saw more Essex Twists....

In situations like this, I find it keeps the mood up to start shopping for another bike...I know you were thinking of getting something else.

Take it easy.

Dude, call your insurance company and get them to deal with it. I am not sure how it will work as it was a passenger that commited the act causing you to crash into the other car. I would imagine the car you fell onto will claim from your insurance and in turn they claim it back from the first car that was at fault.

You can elect a garage to repair your bike (dont let them tell you otherwise) but they will send an estimator out to view the damage on your bike, people I know who have had claims have repaired their own bikes and had cash left over to play with. Those that let the insurance company take the bike didnt see it again for months!

Do you have both driver details and any witnesses? If not you can enquire after cctv from the police.

Whos RRS? You need to contact McCammes specialist motorcycle solicitors.
They will take control of it and do all the running around for you on your behalf, they will send you a hire bike the next day and all of their fees are claimed from the other party. You will never have to pay a penny even if you are at fault. They are really good. Give David Wearden a call on 07825913850 and tell him Adam Pugh recommended you.
Its definately better to deal with it that way rather than through the insurance company but it is important that you let the insurance company know what is going on until you have signed the solicitors paperwork to give them power to speak on your behalf.

Who are you insured with? If they are that useless you should really think about changing to another company when the renewal is due. I was thinking about starting a thread about insurance companys and any experiences we may have had with them.

Surely if it goes to Infinity they will only fix what the estimator tells them is in need of being fixed and they will send all their charges and fees to the insurance company who will pay them directly so i doubt you will see any cash left over to play with if you go down that route...

Redz i dunno who you know apart from Echelon who had their bike taken for months but you need to tell them to change their insurance company. Mine are really good when i had all my problems i was paid out and back riding within a month!!

rss are the same type of people your talking about they have dealt with my dads and brothers claims before.

i will change insurer as these are useless and not help full all they wanted was my money.

the bike will be looked at. at infinity they will write up an estimate of damage the guy will say what he recons only needs replacing if its not written off then that can be contested (i use to work there in parts doing the estimates)

so if not written off ill let infinity do the full repair im a happy boy if the bike is written off and i can buy the bike back then ill rebuild it and then i might be left with cash after you never know

I know several people, infact I am one of them with bike and car, my car was the worst case tho. They had it sitting outdoors in a pound all open for several months before even looking at it, it all went on for ages, in the end i actually took the repair company bosses Lexus and used that until they returned my car!

You must have some budget insurance company mate!! Next time (touch wood it doesnt happen) you may be in a situation like that... take the number i posted and contact them... you'll be sorted sharpish and wont be left to take public transport around until your back up and running.
