My neighbour just called me, told me his GSXR750 been knocked down by a car today at Broadway. The story was, he parked his bike and went to pickup some sushi, in a couple of minutes time, when he came out he saw his bike was tipped over to the right side and the car front bumper was on top of his wheel. The lady driver deny the fault completely saying the bike tip over itself ! Two witnitess saw what had happen, and two other witnitess was on the lady side. He called cops and of course they won't care for these 'tiny' accident, he proceed to dail-a-claim and since he didn't have full coverage, ICBC won't pay for it unless the lady admit it was her fault. The thing is, the lady had called before my neighbour did and reported everything and denies everything too.
The damage - scratched right side fairing, bended can (hit the curb when the bike fell). Sounds to me roughly $2000 damage maybe (?)
How can a bike tip towards the right side if it was parked with a kick stand ?
What will be my neighbour's options ? Lawyer ? Seems like ICBC careless if people weren't getting full coverage.
Your help is much apprecaited.
