    Motorbike accident

    Hi guys,
    I did something really stupid - rode a motorbike after alcohol and I ended up my leg fractured in 5 places. It required quite complicated surgery. I don't have insurance and I now owe to hospital around B130k. Gladly, I do have enough money.

    Anyway, the hospitals says that Thai government will help me with 50k towards cost of hospitalisation. That sounds way too good. Does anyone know if it's true? According to hospital it doesn't matter that I'm a foreigner...

    That's very possible. Start the paper work asap if there is any. It's also possible the hospital will take care of that for you, good luck.

    I believe they're talking about the insurance coverage for the m/c. It also assumes he had a valid DL.

    Concerning your motorcycle accident.



    You should have a proper operatorís license to operate that kind of vehicle in any country around the world. Each country may have different laws and regulations. You just donít buy a motorcycle and hop on, like your howdy duty and ride off in the sunset.



    You need to have the proper insurance to cover you and the other party lest you get into an accident or kill yourself or kill someone else. If you donít, you can be libel for that countries rules and regulations. In Thailand, Thai are right and foreigners are considered in the wrong.



    Remember, the rules here are different then rules in your country or any other civilized country.

    Or it is 50 and you are getting 15 and the guy is keeping 35 , just a thought.
