Feeling rather beaten up today after having a car door opened into me last night.
I've never been involved in a traffic accident before, nor do I drive - so I don't understand what sort of compensation (if any?) I should expect from the driver's insurance people.
I have the guy's details, he was very sorry etc. etc. Been to A&E to confirm my shoulder isn't broken (but badly bruised). Reported incident with Police.
I'm not angling for a big fat payout, But it's going to be at least 2 days off work for me and a case of replacing an 80 quid helmet... Hoping my neck and shoulder stop hurting soon.
How are these things usually settled?
Thanks for any advice
