If the car damage is not much, I wonder if you'd be better off leaving your insurance company out of it, and going directly to his or to court, otherwise they'd likely raise up your rates.

Unless it proves totally in his fault. It's a gamble, either way.

It could have been a nasty mess for me.

Yikes that does sound insanely close.As you know, you have to be proactive to survive on a bike, motorized or not, as most drivers are blind to anything smaller then a dumpster.

Porsche's and small convertibles are on the hit list as well ( me in my old Geo convertible were near invisible to motorist)

As long as it's not OP's fault, his insurance rates won't go up. At least that's how it is in cali.

When I got rear ended month before last, all it was, was his word against mine. No video, no evidence on his truck (he took absolutely no damage). Just from what CHP saw they ruled it his fault, with just that video alone, that truck driver is BBQ, fried, roasty toasty.

Are you going to get a lawyer? Because if your going to sue I would recommend getting a lawyer. Is this guy an owner operator? If so, and if he has 1 or 2 accidents, which I'm sure he does, it's going to be easy to sue him if he isn't with a company, going to be difficult if he is.
