A cop ran a red light during a car chase causing me to lay my bike down. What should I do?

Last night while leaving downtown from my job as a Bartender I approached an intersection with the go ahead (the light was green) As I was about to enter the intersection I noticed a car about to run the red light at a high rate of speed, I immediatly applied my brakes to avoid being T-Boned but a police vehicle... show more Last night while leaving downtown from my job as a Bartender I approached an intersection with the go ahead (the light was green) As I was about to enter the intersection I noticed a car about to run the red light at a high rate of speed, I immediatly applied my brakes to avoid being T-Boned but a police vehicle was chasing the car as well so the only evasive action I could take to avoid being hit by the police car was to lay my bike down. I was able to avoid being hit but my momentum caused me to slide through the intersection (I was going about 35 before applying the brakes) I currently don't have health insurance so I refused medical attention since I was able to get up and walk around. I wasn't able to ride the bike back home since I'm about positive my left wrist is sprained along with a severly swollen right elbow (II only have limited range of motion before pain ensues). I was picked up and went home to sleep it off since I had work today. Upon waking up my body aches much more then it did at the time, but I can't afford to miss work.

The police officer was young, and I know he shouldn't had ran the red light as well, but I don't want to ruin his career since I felt he was just trying to do his job. If I'm sent home from work I won't be able to pay my bills, but I also don't want to place problems on other people...what should I do?
Update: I'm not positive if lights were flashing at the time or not. It was at the end of a residential neighborhood (probably 80 yards or so to the main road) so I really only remember seeing headlights. and reacting since a house prevented me from seeing the chase sooner.

There was another cop behind that was able to pull over and check on me. The other cop had to do a Uturn to come back around. EMS came and I waited in the back of one of the police cruisers (not handcuffed) while he pulled up my information. Some paperwork was filled out, is it possible to obtain a copy of the report?
Update 2: Ended up going to the hospital. Turned out I broke my elbow cleanly off and I'll require surgery within the next 10 days to pin it back on. I'll be off work for 2 months. Luckily I have a month's worth of unused paid time off. My left wrist is also fractured and I have torn muscles in my calf and... show more Ended up going to the hospital.

My left wrist is also fractured and I have torn muscles in my calf and hip. Really didn't think I was hurt that bad at first, but the pain has slowly increased in intensity as the day has gone on. I'll be making phone calls tomorrow.
