Thank you for your response. The cyclist, who was behind me; did not notice my signal to filter left. As I slowed to execute the change of lane, he ran into the back of my car & came off his machine. The police were on scene within 5 minutes & subsequently wrote to me confirming I was not at fault & no further action would be taken. Regardless of the details of the actual incident; I am concerned that my insurers (who I assume are supposed to act only my instructions) decided to proceed with the third party claim against my express wishes. I now have a claim against my name with all future ramifications this will entail.
