*** SERIOUS POST ALERT ***
A number of weeks ago some cockwomble in his big flashy BMW decided he would take exception to me filtering. 3 times he blocked me from moving into a gap in front of him, blowing his horn, waiting until I pulled away then dived up my inside, blocking me and leaving me in an ever more precarious position. On his fourth and final attempt he decided to up his game and move his car outwards which resulted in him running over my left foot. Needless to say we had “words”.
I spoke to Jodi Gordon at Motorcycle Law Scotland who advised me that I should report the incident to the Police which I duly did and she launched a claim against the cockwomble through his insurance company.
In around 6 weeks I received an email from Jodi to say that full liability had been admitted by the other party and an offer of £1,000 was made which I was happy to accept but Jodi went back and secured another £100 for my damaged boot.
I made 2 phone calls, filled in 1 piece of paper, posted it back to MCL and answered 2 emails. It couldn’t have been easier.
They are also offering a free card that entitles you to free legal protection, replacement helmet and gear should you need it so sign up for that on their website.
Great guys to have in your corner folks, can’t speak highly enough of the service. Hopefully you never need them but get their number in your phone. Ride safe all.
