I hope you are o.k.
Have you considered if there are CDOT or other cameras pointing at that location?
Get an attorney. You're obviously in a he-said-she-said situation and the attorney might point out laws that show that you were not at fault and convince their insurance they should pay up.
You might also want to go to a doctor and get checked-out.
Sue the guy. Put legal pressure on him, as an individual. He might realize the cost of defending himself is less than the cost of buying a new bike for an honest-to-goodness commuter just trying to get to work.
You could also spend the money and fix your ride, then sue him, even take him to small claims court for the costs.
I would also recommend for any accident, you call the police, no matter how minor you *think* it is at the time. You are not a doctor nor are you an expert mechanic.
