If the blame is apportioned, both insurance companies pay out apportionately.

 

Well done, and in doing so they negate their need to pay, as I did just say.  Are you actually looking for an argument?  You must be ever so bored!

How does it negate their need to pay? Both pay.

I don't think the bike riders insurance company would like you working for them, just to throw all their potential savings from the claim into the wind just because of what you reckon.  Great contribution though, clearly you're a thinking man.

Yes, I'm a thinking man and I spent 10 years investigating accidents.

LOL, I believe you, really I do!  Like an accident investigator would miss the fact that the car driver doesn't react until he hits it, like they would just ignore that and put all blame on the biker, hilarious stuff!

I just, 5 minutes ago, watched on Thai news another super-brain try to get his bike between a large truck on the left and a car on the right, all going the same direction.

Only problem was the bike was X centimetres wide and the gap was probably X minus 30 centimetres. Only one loser.

Mmmmm, not sure if the truck driver or car driver was a kiwi.

Looks suitably ashamed though.

The motocyclist is to be blamed for his own death. But seriously, he's dead, he paid the ultimate price for his stupidity. It's a tragedy for his family. Only a real d**k would want compensation from the dead person's family.

the car should have insurance of its own.

Looking at it very coldly... The NZ guy will take a loss... he will have to pay for a rental while his car is fixed (month? more), or if written off he will not get the full 'replacement' value of his car...

 

Why should the innocent party take such a hit for someone else's stupidity?... 

 

So... IF the bike rider had not died and was not hurt in anyway but still managed to damage the NZ guys car to the same degree it would require time to be fixed or was written off... what would we think then? that the Motorcyclist should pay for the rental etc... 

 

One of the issues I have with driving in Thailand is that the people drive carelessly and in a number of cases not held responsible for the financial implications of their carelessness.

 

I've never had insurance that includes a rental car or a loaner should my car ever be off the road as a result of someone else (someone elses fault)... but if it were I would be demanding that they pay for a rental of a similar car....  I'm not sure how I'd get along with it... but I'd be pushing like hell for it.

Very few have, have no regard for or just plain don't understand what responsibility means.

Wish I knew the answer.

No, unlike you I don't feel like I can work out all the contributing causes of an accident from looking at a dashcam video, hence my call for an investigation, it is you who wants to hang someone, not me, have you at least worked that much out yet?  Did you even think to consider that the driver may have been drunk and were they not they may have had reactions that allowed them to avoid hitting them?  The first thing that should be done in any fatal accident is take blood tests of all the drivers involved.

No excuses for the clown riding in the wrong direction. Forget all of your investigations and just accept the fact that - that was the root cause of the incident. Contributing causes may include the Kiwi being pissed or tired or whatever but if the wrong direction clown wasn't doing what he has probably done a thousand times, driving in the wrong direction, there would have been no incident and he may have lived another day to ride in the wrong direction again. Case closed!!!
