Was off to see the family in Hereford on sunday, took the scenic route (of course). Was in Buckinghamshire doing 50-60 on an A-road when a woman pulled out of a turning on my left straight into my path.

My instinct was to try and get round the front of her car if possible and hope she stopped soon.. she stopped at the last minute.. a couple of feet from my left hand side. By then tho, i'd already grabbed a handful of brakes cos as far as i was concerned i was just about to eat some bonnet..and the bike was right up just on the front wheel.. It was beyond saving and i went over the front and down the road, bike summersaulting behind me for quite a distance.

Now, I must be the luckiest f*cker in the world cos i avoided hitting anything solid and stopped a few metres short of an oncoming car which had braked! I'm sore as hell but alive and in one piece!

I'm TPFT insurance and my company don't wanna help me out so i gotta do this whole process myself.. I have 2 independant witnesses to say it's her fault but i missed her car so she has no damage to report.. should i go for a no-win-no-fee lawyer? should i approach her ins. company myself? I got a lot of questions, has anyone been thru this and can offer me some advice? My bike, helmet, leathers, boots and bag are all trashed. I just dont want her ins. company to be able to wriggle out of anything.

Thanx a lot. 750

For future reference ---

& hopefully neither yourself or anyone else on here will need it !  --- I keep a spare mobile phone on the bike,  one with a camera I keep it for emergencies ie my main phone goes tits up OR I have a crash,  if I'm in one piece & have my wits about me I'd take photos of vehicle positions ASAP & PDQ if there's any dispute.
