Aftermath of car hitting me on moped

So I came out to England to get married because my wife lives here and her sister had this scooter she let me use to get from my apartment to her families house.

Anyways to keep it semi short I was making a right turn on this two way road when an SUV decided to go around me and they ran straight into my leg going between 40-50 MPH. My fibia and tibia broke at my ankle and went through my skin. I had 3 surgeries to get things fixed. Those big 3 lumps in the pics are my abdominal muscles they had to graft onto my leg to use the blood vessels in them. I have a skin graft on top of all that.

So just a warning to those who like to ride motorcycles, to be extra careful. so many stupid people out there.
Not sure if i'll be able to walk normally again. The story gets worse when the police get involved but i don't want to write a novel.

Re: Aftermath of car hitting me on moped

holy ****.

glad its not life threatening, but man that sucks. almost makes me not want to ride. good luck with the recovery and take care of that.

damn careless drivers...people need to realize that when they are driving carelessly, they put lives in danger and are as bad as drunk drivers imo.

Re: Aftermath of car hitting me on moped

Man, sorry to hear. Best of luck on the recovery!!

Take it from me, it is amazing how much repair they can now do!!

I landed a Mustang GT in a ditch hitting a culvert @ highway patrol estimated 120mph. Car went 80+ feet from impact to rest and I was 78 feet past where the car stopped. Most everything from both knees down was broken, sheared, snapped, and/or destroyed.

3 1/2 weeks in the Elvis Presley Trauma Center. I wore a very similar looking fixator for 8 months, a cast for another year, several surgeries (skin and bone grafts); lost my left ankle completely, docs stretched my leg bone to replace my lost ankle and fused it. They found my right heel 1/3 way up in my calf. All sorts or screws, pins, plates, and documentation photos. My folder even went to London to a medical conference!!

Now, walk with a slight limp and some nice ankle decorations. Most people never notice it unless I over do it at a car show or something. Next day is a little tough from soreness. But hey, I still have both feet!

It gets tough, but keep up the fight. Again, best of luck with your recovery!!

Re: Aftermath of car hitting me on moped

jesus *****g christ that thing is the most grotesque looking piece flesh ive ever seen still attached to a living human being.

i think its pretty safe to say your life will be forever changed from the incident, thus you need monetary compensation in the higher 6 digit range.

Re: Aftermath of car hitting me on moped

Wow! Very sorry to hear about this.

I'm just wondering, did they take entire muscles from your abdomen for those grafts? If so, how does this affect your abdomen now? And if not, how exactly did they take part of them?

Re: Aftermath of car hitting me on moped

They took just the 3 from my left side of my abdomen. My side and back were a bit sore at first because they took a lot of strain when I sat up in bed.

I won't be getting any compensation because its her word against mine. She says that I went out in front of her vehicle, and the police are pressing charges against me saying I wasn't paying attention. Sure I'm mad but there's not a whole lot i can do. Just married so don't have any money for a lawyer and I don't have any contacts here in England. I'll be going to court in 6 months.
It looks much better then the pics now and i just had the fixator taken out Friday. One more surgery to get some screws out and then physio.
thanks for support from those who know what i'm going through.
take care all.

Re: Aftermath of car hitting me on moped

man england is ****ing gay. sounds to me like theyre just trying to screw you over cause youre american. IMO if they cant figure out whos at fault, its a 50/50 accident and if thats the case you can still get money.

You took the words out of my mouth.

Again I say, if everyone on this planet had to ride a bike/moped for a day, there would be a DRAMATIC cut in dumb accidents from just plain negligence.

No, because a moped on moped accident wouldn't be that bad.
