The chance of getting the guy fired are very high, however and he had me file a complaint to get his ass off the road.
I don't mean to come off as rude but this is about more than you and your loose tooth. If the van hit you like you say it did, it will be evident upon inspection of the van in question. I've got paint from the car that hit me all over my bike and even on my shoe. Reporting this is about making sure this person doesn't have the opport***ty to do this to someone else.
