Hit by a car, the driver is responsible. What to do?
I'm sorry if there is a default post for this ...
I got hit by a car this morning. Nothing serious; bruises cuts and a headache/stiff neck. A+E discharged me.
I was in the cycle lane, car was turning into a drive. Driver didn't check their mirror and pulled straight into me whilst i was cycling alongside it.
Police were driving by and stopped. Driver admitted they didn't look and were in the wrong.
Also, super kind eye-witness came up and gave me and the police his number and accounted for the fact the driver pulled into me / was in the wrong.
Took pictures of where the car hit me.
I'm waiting to get the drivers' insurance details from the police.
The driver has been in contact with me to try and arrange it outside of the insurance company and I don't know what to do / how to respond.
With regards to the bike: bent wheels, bent forks, bent front+bank derailleurs, bent handlebars
If anyone has any advice on how to proceed, I would really appreciate it.
This is in the UK.
