If you dump your bike when you have the right of way, to avoid a vehicle which does not have the right of way, and there is no collision, who is at fault?
ex-A person pulled out of a driveway to left turn in front of me and go the opposite direction of my travel. ImgonnahittheSUVshitBRAKE!!!!!chirplockfrontI'mgoi ngdownfeetoffpegsregaintractionfuckthatwasclosedum bbitch!
She drives on looking like because we almost collide.
If I had put the bike down and not contacted her car, would ICBC rule her at fault? Would I have been at fault for locking the front? Is there some formula of time and distance used that adjusters use to decide that a collision was inevitable and no matter of careful braking could have saved a spill?
This could apply to riders being cut off in lane changes or braking hard in corners.
I'd like to think the driver of the car would be responsible for the motorcyclist's spill, but they could argue that rider panic caused the bike to go down and a person with reasonable riding skills could have avoided a crash.
Anybody have this experience and how was it sorted out?
Gets me worked up thinking about it because somehow I'm assuming ICBC would shaft the rider.
