I was parked legally in a hotel car park during a conference yesterday when the side stand of my bike sunk into a repaired section of tarmac which had gone soft due to the heat. It hit the car next to it, causing £500+ of damage to the car in addition to damaging my fairing and snapping my mirror.
1. Who is liable for the damage to the car? Is it definitely me? In which case, am I best just to pay up? I am insured TPFT.
2. Who is liable for the damage to my bike? I suspect the answer could be nobody, but do I have any claim against the hotel?
3. The hotel has a typical 'no liability for loss or damage' sign. Is this valid?
