You should hire a lawyer who can file a lawsuit. The lawsuit a public record and anyone can see it. As long as everything you are alleging is the truth you shouldn't be concerned. But make sure you get the advice from an attorney that you talk to when going over all the facts.

After the accident, I called 911 and the ambulance came and took the cyclist to the hospital. The police asked me to go to the police station and performed a series of sobriety tests, I also had my blood drawn. The police still has my car now and I want to know what may happen next.
