Regardless of which side the gavel came down on.
Just to be clear, I never said that cagers are never at fault. We just have to be better and more alert than they ever will be or have to be. Unfortunately, most of the accidents I read about on this site were avoidable at some level - including my own recent lay-down. Not all of them, but easily the majority.

You have not met me yet but those who have and that met me on rides know I am constantly asking questions. Most of the time it is something small and I am just letting my head get in the way but I did not jump on the bike assuming I was gonna ride it like a pro.
I didn't know about your work accident and I'm glad you survived it. Even though it was caused by someone else's negligence, however, I have no idea what it has to do with this motorcycle accident (or any other one for that matter). You can threaten to punch careless cagers all you want, but it won't change the dynamic that will always exist out there. Plus, in Texas, most cagers will have no idea why you're approaching them, but there's a good bet they'll be more than prepared for you. Just sayin'.....

You are the one who brought up settlements and I just wanted to prove a point that people just throw out sometimes and dont expect someone to have gone through something. And I live in Texas so what makes you think I dont have something as a back up.

All things aside, glad you are still around after the lay down.
