Hit a dog need some help :/

Ok to make a long story short..dog came out of nowhere. Big german shepord dove right under my front tire. Saw him to late no time to brake me and bike fliped at 35 mph. Now there is massive damage to my bike. I do not have full coverage because I cant afford it. I cant afford to pay for my bike repairs. My insurance company said their home owners insurance would cover it; but they do not own their home or a car. We have a leash law here so this is clearly their fault. Easy win in court or anything. I do not have money to pay a lawyer to help me win this in small claims. There were 2 owners of the dog that saw the whole thing and about 4 other witneses. Has this or anything like this happened to anyone else and how can I get paid My bike fliped and both sides are all jacked up and alot of stuff is bent. Thanks for youre help. Matt

Most states have some kind of Victims Assistance or Legal Resource Program. Check with your state to see what is available to you. Don't be disappointed if you wind up footing the repair bill out of pocket.

Well, be thankful you didn't die on the accident, and the dog also.

And make that a lesson for you to slow down a bit.
