Thank you all for the kind words! I'm sure everything will work out.

Jerry, JC was kidding. He knows I practiced law for about 30 years. Of course, I seem to remember a saying about an attorney who represents himself has a fool for a client.  :huepfenlol2:

Actually, I wasn't kidding.  Having practiced law before, I would have expected you to go to the hospital to get checked out.  The shock from the accident your body doesn't register the injuries and besides the outside things that you can see and feel, I know first hand that you can have a ruptured spleen and not even know it.  I've known of others that have had internal injuries and organ damage that weren't aware at the time.  Always go get checked out! 

I believe you missed my point but it was for your failure to get checked out is why I was suggesting not to just get an attorney but to get one that specializes in motorcycle accident/injuries.  Didn't want to assume anything.  :2vrolijk_21:

As I just went through this one month ago to the day. I'm glad you are ok, the bikes can be fixed, not so easy for them to repair you. Good luck with the repairs, sounds like it will go as easy as mine did. Other than still not having my bike back, it went pretty well.


Cheers from up north  :drink:

So glad to hear that it is not as bad as it obviously could have been! Diane and I hope for a speedy recovery from the injuries and that everyone cooperates with the repairs of the bike.

Just saw this Greg.  So glad the collision was no worse on you than it was.  Heal up fast and feel good soon.  Take your time and enjoy any mods or upgrades you're able to sneak in to the bike repair  :2vrolijk_21: .

Greg so sorry to hear about your injuries but glad that you are okay as i guess it could have been a lot worse.  And yes 60 is harder to recuperate than when you were 30 so hang in there and take care of yourself.

Gentlemen, thank you all again for the kind words. JC is gets a big, "I told you so." Thursday evening a couple of friends took me out for dinner even though I was moving somewhat gingerly. When I tried to get back into a car after dinner, the pain was so excruciating it was definitely time to go get checked out. So, Saturday morning I went in for x-rays and the results were poor, at best. Two broken ribs (numbers 5 and 6) on the left side. Both are displaced but there is really not much they can do other than strap me up. They were somewhat surprised that I was ambulatory.

Even worse, my right thumb is fractured near the base and that fracture is displaced. The doctors believe it will require surgery and have referred me to a hand specialist which I of course cannot see until Monday. Not very good news for a guitar player. Really, this just makes it a slightly bigger bump in the road with a longer recovery. Everything will be fine....

Wow, sorry to hear all of this.

I guess the upside is that it's just broken bones and no internal injuries.  They'll play humpty-dumpty with you and put you back together.  It's pretty amazing what they can do now days......even with compounded broken bones.  The only other thing I can share with you Greg.....follow the doctors directions...don't get to feeling good one day, over do it and end up aggravating the injuries.  Don't ask me how I'd know about that.......

Greg,

I am glad you finally got checked out. It’s not much comfort, but be glad it’s just a fractured thumb. Most of the time it’s the thumb and a broken or shattered wrist. This is usually caused from applying front brake up to impact, which is the correct thing to do. I think the slower speed really reduced the hand injury.

Rest up and get well soon.

Ditto Greg, I hope that you're able to get this whole process in the rear view mirror sooner than later!

Glad you’re doin okay Gregg, when I got hit in 2016 by another cyclist from the rear I was relaxed so I wasn’t to injured, but it sure hurt. Get well so we can get together from some riding. I’ll be 68 this year and I’m not ready to stop riding.
