You're still wrong and now quoting some daft made up stat !!...99% of foreigners are to blame ?? - Thats still absolute rubbish and is a claim made by 'noobies' or those propping up a bar and continuing to perpetuate the same old idiotic myths about Thailand while never actually experiencing anything.... 

Now you proved yourself, you don't know anything. When you can not even guess about things from other people's be quiet. Thanks

 

Are you really that confident that '99% foreigners are to blamed even when not at fault' even in light of the numerous posts on this thread (and many others) which offer first hand experience that this is not the case.

I got hit at a u turn by a lad on a moped going well over 80kph(he admitted this to the police) because he was travelling straight and I was turning it was my fault and I had to pay, this was in the early hours, at the police stn for meeting they obviously switched drivers as the supposed driver walked in injury free followed by uncle with injuries, they sat in front of me laughing and sharing out the money, I had extensive road rash plus a shoulder that after 2 yrs is now 99% better, my experience of how you get taken advantage of.

You did a U-Turn and got hit by a lad going straight on. 

There is no way of proving the other motorcyclist was speeding.

 

It's difficult to see how the Law in any Western Country would side with you.

 

How much money did causing the accident cost you? 

 

If the 'cost' was excessive, you may well have been taken advantage of. But, if medical costs, repair costs were covered but not much more you may well have received fair treatment - not entirely fair in your eyes, but fair to someone impartial. 

 

You may well have been treated unfairly, or your version of events is an example of 'bias' in your own favor and perhaps something we may all be guilty of from time to time when not wishing to accept blame for a mistake we have made.

 

Glad you are 99% better, those U-Turns are lethal.

He admitted to going over 80kph, what got me was them sitting in front of me sharing out the 13000bht, even though I feel it was his fault( they definitely switched riders as there is no way he could have been injury free, the Uncle walked in behind the lad sporting leg injuries, yes I feel lucky also as if he had died I think I would be in prison or deported because I couldn't pay the millions it would have cost!

My police friend was talking to the group and the lad who told him of his speed(obviously didn't know or couldn't care what the speed limit was, police friend did nothing other than negotiate the payout.

His speeding could mean a fine, but would in general not mean liable for the accident.

In the past now, I'm still breathing so all good.
