Advice needed please
Please could you give me some advice?
A couple of weeks ago I was cycling to work, when the car in front decided to turn left (without indicating) and then slamming on his breaks before getting around the corner. I couldn't stop in time and crashed into the back of him, the bus behind me also couldn't stop and crashed into the back of me. Luckily I escaped with just swollen hands, bruises, aches & pains and a week off work to recover. My bike is a right off.
The police and ambulances attended but it doesn't seem like the police are pursing anyone.
I don't know whether I should be trying for an insurance claim against the car in front who was clearly driving without due care & attention, or the bus who was too close to me. I really don't like all this insurance claiming business.
What would you do?
