Glad everyone is basicallyalright, CC!

Shame about the bike being bashed. Just glad it wasn't any worse.

Yup, tourist time here in the Okanagan, is a real treat. with lots of them not knowing where the Hell they're going.

Glad to hear that you weren't hurt worse CC.

Under the circumstances and her lack of interest in your wellbeing, I would definately go for the jugular and claim every penny you can, as per hatchetman's advice.

Hope you and the wife aresoon recovered and the bike is soon sorted.

Here the offence is careless driving (hefty fine and loss of points) No mitigating circumstances...never. AND this is why I have a rear brake light modulator fitted. They could never say they didn"t see me .. what"s going on with the print here...my eyes are going...

Sorry to hear it CC, but glad you're relatively alright.
If you need any help with IckyBicky give me a shout. I had a girlfriend awhile back that was in a fight with them, so I went to UBC law library and studied all the insurance statutes. I got her 10G with one meeting in an afternoon when lawyers were getting nowhere.
That's the kicker, because lawyers you hire on your side automatically create lawyers on theirs, and you may have seen the cartoon with a cow in it with one person pullin on the horns, one pullin on the tail, and a lawyer settin there milkin it in the middle....

I once heard a stat that ICBC pays out 90 percent of its settlements on the courthouse steps.
Don't take it that far. Know what you got comin, and tell them face to face what you expect. You'll most likely get a check.
All medical bills, including massage, chiro etc. with a Doctor's note are covered. If you can get a Doctor's note saying it would be helpful, it's covered. Thai massage, Swedish touch...
Also, loss of work is covered. You have to serve them notice that you aren't working, and if memory serves you should receive a check within 10 days.
You're a smart guy. All that stuff is in the library. Once you buckle down and start reading it ain't so bad. It's the law, so they have to pay. That's the beauty part. The only way they get away with it is when people don't know the law.

(Sung to the tune of Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain)

In the tail lights' glow, I see 'em
Blue hairs driving in my lane
When she hit me and departed
I knew there'd be no insurance claim.

Lucky I'm a paid up member
Here comes good ole' Triple-A
From the tow truck I remember
blue hairs driving in my lane.

Glad to hear you're both ok!

I'm glad to hear that you and the wife came out okay. Sorry about the bike.

Be sure to really watch the next few days as far as how you feel. Too many times I've done things where I really should have gone the the doctor or even the ER and didn't, then days and months later, said to myself "D**n you are so stupid"

Neck and back pains and injuries can show up later on and then it's too late.

There has been some high powered griping about insurance rates. Everyone poking fingers at folks who ride without a helmet, at folks who ride or drive without insurance. Blame has been tossed at those who carry too little insurance. At careless drivers. Basically pointing the finger at everyone except those most responsible for skyrocketing insurance rates.

The folks making claim sthat "shoot for the moon". Those who pad the claim with "massage and chiro". Taking off work. Those trying to get every damn dime they can out of someone else's insurance.

No don't get me wrong. I think the victim is entitled to reasonable compensation. REASONABLE.

Yes the full value of the motorcycle should be compensated. Yes all NECESARRY medical expenses should be covered. But this greedy sue 'em for everything you can get attitude just stinks. Those who believe in this hav eNO RIGHT to bitch about insurance rates what so ever.

I do not mean to offend folks with this. But I truly find such attitudes disgusting. I understand the desire to punish the person at fault. I truly sympathise with CC and his wife for their misfortune. However I do NOT see any justifiable reason for going after an exhorbitant insurance claim just because you can.

Insurance rates are not high because of uninsured drivers, or because of fast cars, or inattentive drivers. Insurance rates are high for one reason and one reason only. Exhorbitant insurance claims.

Ok I'll hop off my soapbox and burn it now.
