Basically got into a minor accident with a minivan on the adjacent right lane that made a sudden left turn onto my lane and I crashed right onto its side. Apparently the lady did not check mirrors-- she was not going fast however before making the turn, but I was pulling up pretty close around 19-21 on the opposite lane when she made that turn so I didnt respond quick enough. Front wheel no longer run smoothly, got all scratched up and bruised but no internal injuries. Went to hospital in ambulence, took public transport home. Had police report and witnesses, waiting for the actual report to be ready. What would be the standard next step? Get a lawyer and let him deal with the rest? BTW, this was inside a large public park freeway where the lanes are supposed to be clear of cars. Occassionaly cars are allowed to go in to drive into the parking lot, but for the most part all the lanes are open to cyclists and runners,etc. It is in Prospect park brooklyn during weekday 11:40 am. Ive had a friend who gave me some helpful advice but would prefer any additional help if anybody has anything to chip in. Thanks!
