Very poor curbs dividing bike and path

A VAN was parked directly across the Cycle Path. I went to avoid this van and came off my bike due to the divider between the Cycle lane and footpath. Most are flat and this is not clearly marked that it is a raised curb. If there is CCTV I would like this as I would like to locate the van owner and report it as illegally parked and make them aware it caused me to have a serious accident. I now have a badly bruised rib. Bruised knee and scratches and scrapes up and down the left of my body and a badly bruised ledf hand. My stem on my bike is also damaged. Please enforce the no parking on these lanes (double yellows are present) or do something to make cyclists aware that the curb is ever so slightly raised AS IT IS NOT CLEAR. I look forward to hearing from you on what action you plan to take on this badly designed cycle path. I understand I am not the first cyclist to seriously injur themselves on this stretch. Please do something about it before someone dies. I look forward to your response. If this this is not the correct area to report this issue, please provide me with contact details of where I can raise this issue and/or complain.
