Always get your bike looked over after an accident

Sometimes you can be involved in a minor prang that you think hasn't caused any damage at the time, but then some hidden damage is shown up months down the line during a routine service.

What to do? Providing you got the other driver’s details at the time of the accident, you can claim off the third party portion of his insurance policy.

In which case, you have three years for personal injury and six years for property damage.

They will send out an assessor to value the damage caused by the prang, but get the garage to prepare a report for you to make sure they don’t miss anything.

It’s always best to get your bike checked over by a qualified mechanic after any kind of an accident.
