had my first accident this morning. was on a major road and about to turn right into a minor road. i stopped by bike, indicating right i watched for a safe gap im oncoming traffic that would allow me to turn into the minor road. i saw a gap that was too small so didntt take it, bit to my utter disbilief a small white van waiting to pull out of the minor road did! ... and bang. it hit the right side of my bike and right angle. bike and me ended up on the floor. as soon as i was down i was up, but the pain in right foot and ancle was inbearable, so knew something was knackered. the guy was full of sorrys, but he shouldnt have missed a stationary bike parked right in front of him sideways on. he said sun got in his eyes. now in hospital in really bad pain and have to have surgery tomorrow, as its a serious and unstaboe fracture

now that i do think about it, i think someone may have flashed the van to invite him out. i could have taken evasive action, had i had the presence of mine to... but i think i was just so surprised to see him coming out, even though i was blatently right in front of him. they saids at hospital that breaks like that are usually not straight. thanks SIDI boots, mine was.
Sorry to learn of your mishap, good luck with the surgery and get well soon.
The sun got in his eyes, in that case it was unsafe for him to proceed and it is not a valid reason. Get a good solicitor on the case.

Hi geoffart. If you were on your way to or from work and are in a union at work, then you are covered by your union. Get your rep to contact them and they will take the case for you. I got wiped out by a car pulling out on me years ago, and my neighbour told me this info. Worked a treat 9 weeks off work with broken wrist and leg damage. They claimed for my loss of wages, clothing, helmet etc. And the insurance wrote my bike off. Hope this info helps. Ginnelli
