I'm hazy on the details, but apparently it was mine. I was cited for failure to yield. It's academic anyway. She was uninsured, so I should benefit from my 'uninsured motorist insurance' regardless of fault. And if she is uninsured, it's because she hasn't the money for insurance, meaning there's not much point in filing a suit.
Very good points roger.

Your brain seems to be working pretty good (and realistically)

Wow, Roger, the financial side of this never occurred to me. I hope THAT heals too.

Pretty good health insurance. Best possible outcome is $1000.00 co-pay hospital and $500.00 for ambulance. Plus prescriptions, of course. May be higher, but they haven't kicked out a bill yet.

Oddly, the financial side was the first thing I thought of. The ambulance arrived and I think I said "How's the bike, and hey, I've got Lovelace insurance."

Just talked with roger a bit .... but forgot to ask how the bike is, Swimpy. :wink:

(He's not doing too bad, after three days at work, it seems. [Though it certainly isn't easy either.])

Lovelace Insurance? I've heard of them: they're the outfit that gives you a BJ instead of money. Right? Gus recommended it to me once.

Don't know, Swimpy. I am told there's not a scratch on it, proving you should always lead posterior first. My place was painted and carpeted while I was in the hospital, and there are tons of stuff, including the bike out in the storage shed. I haven't quite dug down to it yet, as I'm still fairly limited in what I can do. Also, I'm not quite up to riding yet anyway. When I can get to it, I'll take it to the bike shop for a quick looking over if it seems okay to me.

It better be in good shape. Before the accident, I had ordered and received (but not installed) a Brooks saddle, a pair of seat bags, and a Thompson elite seatpost. The only thing would transfer to my old bike is the seat bag. The saddle has an unconditional "return for any reason" as I bought it from Wallingford Bike Parts. Guarantee is the kind I like. If you decide you dont' like it, you can return it within 6 months for full refund.

Hah! See how I'm improving? A few weeks ago, I couldn't have sat at the keyboard long enough to come up with two paragraphs.

Too bad our keisters don't come with a guarantee like that!

Frankly, I don't give a rat's ass (Wink) about the bike. I'm just glad the rat's ass is improving day-by-day. I read that you were back at work. I hope that helps to get your mind off the pain a bit. I'm sure it eases your financial worries. Hang in there, Rog.

You know Steve, I've got a Kettler rowing machine, and I'm pretty sure it's the same company. It's in storage at the moment, and I'll probably be in condition for the bike before I am for rowing.

Yeap, it's the same company. They make (plastic) toys and (plastic) garden furniture as well - situated quite close to us.
