Had my first serious accident on the bike last night. Was heading out to dinner down Koornang road in SE Melbourne when an oncoming P plater wanting to turn into a street to the left of me turned across straight infront of me. I braked as hard as i could but still managed to collect his rear bumper which sent me flipping over the car (According to witnesses i managed to do 2 complete rotations in the air) and landing about 5 metres away on the other side. Results, bike is a write off and i have a broken ankle, bruised ribs, sprained wrist and bumps and bruises - i reckon i got off very lightly! Very lucky in my opinion as it could have been worse. Called the police and got witness info. The little fella had only been driving for 3 months and lost his license for failing to give way, careless driving and causing bodily harm or something or other. Either way, no driving for him for a year. I then proceeded to spend the next 6 or so hours in hospital which was great fun. Anyway, i only have 3rd party on my bike but he has insurance too which is good. He's admitted fault and i have a police report etc etc so shouldn't be a problem. I called his insurance company but they told me he hasn't made a claim yet, so i need to contact him to make a claim and then i can talk to the insurance company for damages. Anyway, being my first real accident, what damages should i claim? The obvious being my bike and helmet. But can i also claim my mobile phone which was broken during the accident, and my boots/gloves/jacket which were all damaged? Not exactly sure how all of this works. Any advice would be appreciated!
