Super fit he may be, but he didn't train his brain as much as his muscles....

What a bloody idiot, no helmet lucky he is not dead. Now a go fund me to pay his medical bills. Rides a motorbike, no helmet, just a clown.

How can you type up such a nasty comment regarding someone who had a serious accident. He is injured badly for Christ's sake..   Truly hope he recovers and makes it through as best as he can

a large bleed to the brain aswell as a six inch crack to his skull”

Based on that I would say chances of recovery are very slim. Perhaps a life in a vegetated state awaits him.

Another GoFundMe job I'm afraid.

 

No lid, insurance apparently invalidated when he failed to follow UK government advice to return to the UK.

 

 

 

My insurance has not been invalidated.

 

The true test of any insurance company's  policy validity is trying to apply its coverage.

You actually think that a ''Thai Motorbike Helmet'' would have saved him a 300 baht, plastic Helmet would not have helped much? could do more damage if not fitted correctly, now a imported full face to UK, European or DOT standards yes that would have helped.

 

Trouble is most Helmets are only for show in Thailand as in most of Asia

 

Just my opinion.

Well mate, when i had my accident, i was wearing the freebie helmet supplied by the Honda dealer, so yes a plastic Thai helmet would have saved his head. the only part of my body not injured was my head.

We've all done stupid things in our life, me included, so far be it for me to 'throw the first (or last) stone.

 

That said something just doesn't ring right about the Go Fund Me appeal.

 

According to the information on the Gofundme page ( https://www.gofundme.com/f/deans-in-a-critical-condition?utm_source=facebook ) the individual had the horrific motorcycle accident in Hau Hin and was initially treated at a local hospital.  Apparently the hospital ran out of blood, so he was transferred to the private Bangkok Hospital in Bangkok.

 

It appears that he is currently in the intensive care unit of the Bangkok Hospital and his treatment is expected to cost in excess of 100,000 GBP.

 

His insurance company has refused to pay for his treatment and his family are seeking donations to pay for his treatment.

 

I remember very well that when I was taken to the Bangkok Hospital in Bangkok by ambulance after fracturing my ankle several years ago, I was held in the reception area for quite some considerable time, in excruciating pain, until my insurance company in the UK confirmed by fax that they would fund my treatment.

 

So, if the hospital’s policy is that they require proof of payment up front e.g. confirmation from insurance company or a credit card with very large credit limit before they provide treatment, how comes he is in their intensive care unit with a potentially massive bill that the insurance company refuses to pay and he/his relatives say that they cannot pay?

 

I somehow don't see the hospital providing the sort of treatment that he requires on the basis that his relatives hope to secure funding from public donations.  They (the hospital) are a business, not a charity.

Since his wife was with him she could have shown the hospital that they own property,condo, house , bikes , car ect and if she signed a statement to promise  to pay they would take out a lien on said property if payment was not made.

His beach appearance picture of tats and shaven head looks like he was trying to copy the Rock! Too bad, as this will certainly mess up his life if he survives.

Glad you where OK, depends on the severity of the impact I guess, just know I would sooner trust a helmet tested to destruction. Ride Safe

Hundreds of thousands of dollars/pounds ~ pain and suffering  could have been avoided, for the cost of a 1,000 baht helmet. What an idiot. Hopefully he survives and learns that Thailand is no place to take a chance like that.
