I had a friend who's bike slid under him in a long corner, he was doing 100 km/h, he went on his back and luckily only damaged his left elbow "a bit". he was wearing a leather biker jacket.

although a bike can be practical, I find the risk for injury way to high

hope your thumb heals quickly and you'll be up and running soon

Considering the circumstances you were very lucky.

In similar circumstances one friend broke his hip and knee, another one had several injuries and had to wear a neck-brace for 3 months, ... both had protective suits, both crashed into a car that "didn't see them"

I hope that you didnīt hit your head or abdomen,right? If you did,i hope you made some x-ray&ultrasound exam.
Agree with JMKe about bikes.
Get well soon!

Part of the price anyone will have to pay riding a bike It is not how; it's a matter of when. I have had a few from over 35 years riding.

By international medical classification ,ANY broken bone is classified as heavy injury-you may sue that driver on that base too.Adequate medical documentation (traumatologist&radiologist report) is necessary.Just let you know,Bonbon...
