Hi everyone, Just wanted to share something with you.

My mother was in a motorcycle accident on Nov 4 and has a badly broken shoulder and leg. The police report is not correct and she will have to sue personally i believe to get her medical bills paid(she doesn't have medical insurance).

A bit of details on the accident. She was following a car a few miles and the car turned right blinker on and started turning right at an intersection, my mother proceeded to go around her(staying in her lane) and the car decided to turn left or maybe make a uturn right in front of her.... The police report is showing she was passing the car prior and into the intersection and the car was making a left hand turn, they never took a statement from my mother.

Like expected the insurance company want to settle it and fully blame my mother.

THANK YOU! for the thoughts and prayers.

Back in May a van cut me off in almost the EXACT same senario. He went to turn right, then went left suddenly cutting me off as I was about to pass. I bounced off him at about 25-30mph. The bike was fine and I only got rashed up a little Cops gave me a ticket and were profiling me bad but no insurance claim was filed.

Glad you came out with only minor injuries. my moms accident is very similar about 20-25mph, bike isnt to bad but its a 97 Honda Shadow 600 so it might get totaled based on value. She is already 170K+ in Hospital bills. The leg has a fairly good chance of getting back to normal(as close as it can with the metal in it now) the shoulder from what the DR said will never be back to normal, she MIGHT be able to raise that arm shoulder height.
