The case, brought by Lourika Boisson, was heard by Deputy Judge President Gregory Kruger in the Pietermaritzburg High Court on Wednesday.
She said that her hospital expenses were R60,000 and repairs to her BMW motorcycle would cost about R43,000.
She developed necrosis, a skin flap was debrided several times and she needed a skin graft. Her knee was permanently disfigured.
On the road to Stanger in March 2008 she crashed at the unmarked and unpainted speed bump. She said that the roadside warning sign was obscured by tree foliage and was in shade.
She said the department failed to maintain warnings to road users of the speed calming device.
The amount to be paid to her is still to be decided.
