Bus Accident

On my way to work, the bus driver practically closes the doors on my neck choking me while I was on the bus steps trying to get on. I have no bruises since I wore a turtleneck, a scarf and leather jacket collar on. I have witnesses. I went to the Health Unit the morning of the accident at work. They checked my vital signs and filled out a report. I went to ER on the evening of the accident, I have seen my PCP who recommended neck X-ray. X ray doctor states that there are no visible fractures. I lost my confidence in the bus company. I have nightmares about getting beheaded while boarding the bus. The bus company does not deny the incident. It claims through that both the new driver and the trainer claim that the former had his hands on the wheel after he opened the doors. Bus company's technical inspection has not shown any technical malfunctions. Bus company e-mails me a case/report number and asks me to call Gallagher Basset at an 800 number for the claims adjuster. I called and talked with the claims adjuster who asked me what I wanted; also, asked me if I had missed work, which I did not even though I have serious neck pains, if I have medical insurance. What chances do I have if I decide to go to court? Thank you.
