Bike/Car Accident question

Bike/Car Accident question

Would anyone be able to offer legal advice as to how I should proceed? A car pulled out from a side street on Bellona Ave. and hit me while I was riding down Bellona.  The accident did occur in late May on a Saturday morning.  At the time the driver was apologetic and offered to cover the expenses incurred to repair my bicycle.  I just called him today and gave him the total.  He immediately began to question me regarding where exactly I was riding when I "'hit him."  He then stated that there was a reason that he did not receive a ticket.  Finally, he noted that I could send him the receipts and that he would "think about" paying.
I know I waited some time to contact him but now it comes down to principal.  I would be willing to pursue legal action if possible.  Does anyone have legal advice for me or know a cycling lawyer?

I think Gordon Peltz who has an office on Harford Road may be able to help you.  Gloria Epstein has guided me to him on occasion and I believe he is a bike rider.

I found this website, unfortunately it's in the UK but you might be able to get some ideas from it or advise. Good Luck. Gordon Peltz is a lawyer and a long time cyclist going back into the 70's.
