I was cruising home on my bike on a busy road in Hollywood CA called LaBrea. A man opens his car door without caution and I hit it straight on. I had no idea what to do as this has never happened to me before so I just left after exchanging phone numbers. His insurance company calls me to give a report and asked if i'de like to make an injury claim/report. I declined saying I was okay but after going to the gym and trying to exercise I've noticed pain in my knee and right shoulder as well as my left ankle. I noticed the pain before but thought it was something I could walk off. I've decided to get checked out by a doctor but I'm unsure as what to do next. Get a lawyer , make a claim and see a doctor or see a doctor make the claim and higher a lawyer or what?
