Tip of the Day:

Go to the ER. Preferablly of the largest hospital in your area. They will send you a bill but just don't pay it. Hospitals never send bills to collection agencies. If you can ever pay some of it or all of it, then go ahead. But I wouldn't worry about getting it sent to collections because hospitals don't do that.

Put your health first...you don't want to get it infected and then it turns into MRSA or necrotizing fasciitis and then you'll lose a limb or possible die. Sorry to be blunt but it's the truth if it becomes infected.

Take care.

^ Health first, worry about the bill later.

See if your insurance covers personal injury accidents too.

you should by all means consider medical ins if you're going to be riding motorcycles. remember its a bit risky, compared to many hobbies...just my .02 cents

Hm i dont think as long as its not Gushing blood after you clean it, then it doesnt look too bad. Clean it well with alcohol swabs and bandage it up. It will probably still bleed but if it soaks up your bandage quick then maybe have a DR check it out. Please know im not a DR myself, just suggestion. =P

So no full coverage?

That doesn't look too bad really. Nothing to suture. A hospital might want some other tests like x-rays, but the treatment for the abrasion will be washing it using betadine solution and applying a bandage along with something for pain most likely and a tetanus shot if you haven't had one in the last 3 years, and some topical antibiotic and additional bandages for you to change, then return in a week. It could still cost $1,000 easily. Medical care is always about 3X what seems reasonable.

not really but since it was a hit and run everything is on me because there is no one to blame, no one to pay for injurys, no one to fix the bike, it all lands on me now, so like stated above i suggest everyone have a running camera at all times so this situation can be avoided...
