I was hit by a car while riding my bicycle in the bike lane heading northbound, a car pulling out of an apartment driveway to my left hit me and sent me flying off of my bike. The bike is damaged and I suffered from a wrist injury. I called police once I got home (did not have a cell phone on me) and they are looking into investigation since they were not called at the scene. I would like to be compensated for my pain and suffering, injuries, as well as the cost to replace or fix my bicycle. What is the best course of action? What will an attorney do for me? What can I do on my own?
The driver did not provide insurance, name or anything. I just wrote down their plate number and description of the car.
