I was in Milwaukee, WI, riding my bike like I do every day, home from work. I was riding in the bicycle lane and a woman flung open her car door, and I slammed into it and flew off my bike. I went to the emergancy room, the bill was $50... I went to the bike shop, and I find that my bike is totaled and the bike costs $332... I went to work with a 'limited duty' doctors note, and was told from my boss there that the company doesn't allow people to work limited duty, so I am to not work without pay for an entire week. I wanted to know if the accident was the woman's fault, and if it is, what is she liable to pay? or rather, her insurance? the bike? the medical bill? the lost wages?
