6.50am - Happily on my usual commute to work
6.55am - Knocked down by a motorist coming out of a junction, onto his bonnet, and then in a heap on the road.
2 Police Offiers on there way to work stopped and helped, although they did not witness the incident.
The driver that hit me stopped and helped also and admitted he did not see me???
Front light in use at the time Hope Vision 2, so how he did not see me, i will never know!
Police and Ambulance were called and i was soon strapped to a streacher and off to the local hospital, check over by 2 Doctors, nothing seemed to be broken, so sent home to recover.
Woke up this morning in a bit of pain to say the least! Achey in places that were not even sore yesterday. The Police informed me that the driver will be getting charged for careless driving.
My Gore jacket is ripped, Giro Xen is cracked, front wheel is buckled beyond belief, cant rotate it due to it fowling on inner fork legs and they are wide ( eXotic carbon 29ers )
I have not even had a chance to properly look over the rest of the bike for damage, think i will take it to my LBS to make sure the frame / forks are not bent.
What to do now claim wise?
Now im unsure what to do / who to get in touch with to find out???
