I sympathise with your situation King_o.  The other driver was definitely in the wrong in my opinion but these days with insurance claims without an independent witness or camera evidence they'll probably treat as 'knock for knock'.  Although maybe the fact he's admitted being in the wrong lane to complete a full circle of the roundabout it could be admission of liability...

Got the latest copy of the Highway Code (they gave it to us on our BikeSafe course lol) & found this quote from Rule 186 (Roundabouts section):

'When taking an exit to the right or going full circle, unless signs or markings indicate otherwise:

    signal right and approach in the right hand lane
    keep to the right on the roundabout until you need to change lanes to exit the roundabout
Like the other guys say it's SO fortunate you weren't on a bike and had the protection of a 'cage' but regarding your immediate problem of the claim try contacting this guy:

Never overtake on a junction (a roundabout is a junction)

I try to never arrive at a place together with another vehicle. If I'm on a main carriageway and a vehicle is approaching it at the same time I either speed up and go past before they arrive or slow down and judge them again when they are standing traffic.

On a roundabout I keep the same speed as other vehicles while traveling through it. Getting on is easy with our nimbleness no one can stop us.. however getting off we have to depend on what other traffic is doing - therefore getting off is far more dangerous
