I was knocked off my bike just before Xmas. Driver turned right across my path while I was in a bus lane. No indication and obviously without looking.
The third parties evidence that I wasn't allowed in the bus lane was a picture of the lane taken from google. Date on the picture was June 2008 bus lane trial started sept 2008. Accident December 2011.
They also produced a photocopy of a page from the highway code which shows a bus lane sign.
They still won't accept I was legally allowed in the bus lane. A photo of the bus lane sign, links to the tfl website showing the bus lane is open to us. But no they still won't accept it.
The only damage to my bike was a bit of plastic snapped off my front mudgaurd. Bike has been checked out by the dealer and all is well. The third party is wanting to send an assessor round to check my bike.
I have a new born baby to look after and don't really have the time to be dealing with them. I've been there when they have checked a friends bike out and they are wankers.
So do I Legally have to let them look at the bike or can I just send them a picture of the mudgaurd?
Any advice would be helpful.
