I'll try to keep this brief as possible. Someone opened their car door into my bike yesterday while riding home. He opened the door just as I was passing, so he missed my wheel and opened it into the angled forward part of my frame. I flew around. Can't remember the next two seconds too well, but I think my bike got swung around because there was a wheel mark on the side of his car next to the hood. I'm feeling bruised up but not so great today after the trip to the emergency room last night. My frame is pretty crushed in the spot that collided with the door. After apologizing many times while writhed in pain on the sidewalk (he also said he'd pay for my broken side mirror -- $6.50 -- woohoo!), the owner of the door was much more confrontational on the phone when I got out of the hospital. Anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with this? I was riding in West Hollywood. I'm not looking to stick to him, but if it's his fault then I want to get my emergency room and bike bills taken care. I'm not a confrontational person, but I want to stand up for myself. BTW, i went to Cedar's emergency. They were all great. I was surprised by how reasonable and helpful everyone was.
