So... A happy ending.
GF's lawyer emailed the other day. Turns out the Police ignored GF's evidence, and went straight to their own CCTV which showed the driver clearly turning left across my GF and wiping her out.
Cue two weeks of silence, then an email yesterday from GF's lawyer.
The other party are offering £395 for the repairs to her bike - what it cost. Plus £1000 pain and suffering. The Police have cautioned him and he is now obliged to do some further driver training which he has to pay for... which I believe will set him back about £300. If he doesn't complete the training successfully, he has to resit the test for his licence.
Then there are his lawyers fees - take a guess but £400- £500 feels like the zone. And finally the cost of his insurance which is certain to rise.
When this fool graciously agreed to drive her home after the accident, my GF said she expected him to pay for some new forks and he said he would.
The new forks cost her £130.
What an idiot.
