I think the critical words here are that she saw you & decided she had enough time to pull out-error of judgement (or lack of). You were on the main road & she pulled into your path. And shes saying its YOUR FAULT! Hope you get a satisfactory result & glad you werent more badly hurt. Did you consult a doctor?
Lewisham hospital A+E for a checkup, said i was all good, I knew i was fine because the pain died down whilst on the floor for half an hour, but I wanted to get checked over just to be safe.

Glad you are not badly hurt BUT nail her.She is clearly in the wrong. She was pulling out of her drive way and admits she saw you!!!but thought she had time to pull away, clearly undue care and attention. One would have more sympathy for her if it had been a SDSU. How do you know you are okay ? pain could come back at a later date.Good luck.
The back is starting to play up at work, moving bikes around, picking up stuff off the floor. Not too sure if it's just where I'm sore or if something is actually wrong!

If she pulled out of a house or side road into your path and you were on the major road I don't see how it could possibly be your fault unless you were driving recklessly and weren't in control of your bike but I seriously doubt you were doing that on a 125. I don't think she has a leg to stand on. If you aren't happy with how your insurance company is handling it think about getting a solicitor.
I'm going through an accident management company called MCAMS, we recommend them to customers at work if they crash. I used them last time they done all the paperwork and contacting for me.


It was a wet day so I kept to the speed limit, she said to the police officer that was on the scene that she saw me and thought she had enough time to do, but a day later it's my fault. I told MCAMS this and they're contacting the police to get his statement. It was a busy road, being the South Circular at 8am an all!

try to find any nearby houses or shops with CCTV. They may have caught the accident on film to shoot her story down.
Just looked on google maps, street view. None, it was more of a residential road than a high street.

Hi all,

The Crash:
Monday morning I crashed my cbf125. Woman pulled out of her driveway form behind a car in front of me. The road conditions were wet so as I broke the bike went out from underneath me. The bike went into the Rear RHS of the car and I behind the car along the floor.


The Damage:
As I hit the floor my lower back was in so much pain (7.5/10). The bike has a bent frame, bent yoke, fairings both broken, front fairing/headlight unit broken, bent forks, bent disc, broken indicators, broken shifter.
Didn't get to see her car, I was on the floor, I hope the police got all the details I need.





The Aftermath:
I'm on a MCAMS loan bike until the insurance is sorted, I don't have a 125 to take me up until december (When I take my A2 Test), insurance paid for a new helmet (got a Shoei Qwest), and she said I am at fault for the accident.


And then yesterday my phone smashed on the floor, having a terrible week so far!

Welcome to the forum, bike looks very nice, won`t be long before we are asking you for advice :)
Ask away mate!


lovely bike look after it jon,      is that a indian stone patio  your parked on.   :lol
I'll try and look after her, regular maintenance, oil change every 6 months.


I'll be doing a detailed service on her soon, all fluids, front caliper rebuilds, new clutch and springs, plugs and filters. Carbs seem okay but might clean them out in a year or so.


I don't need to do it to the bike it's only because it has no history I want to be safe rather than being sorry!

Hi all!


New to the forum as I have recently purchased a BEAUTIFUL FZS 600 2003 in blue. 100k on the clock, 40k on the engine for only £800.


Little bit about me:
I'm still on a CBT as I am only 18 although I have the money ready for my A2 tests in the late november time.
I study Motorcycle Mechanics at college and have an apprenticeship in a garage. Will be starting my second year on level 2 in september.





Jon
