We have had a few people come into the shop recently with
injuries and damage resulting from incidents with motorists.
They have not had details on the driver or the registration of the car

Always try and get details or at least Registration details even if
ends up as a hit and run.

with some examples of cases that have settled in the cyclists favour.
None of this should be taken as legal advice but it worth a read
to consider your options when placed in this situation.
NB: these are US cases
