There may not be enough information here to give a complete answer. This could really go either way depending on how far back from the intersection the lane change occurred.

To tell you the truth, You both are at fault. If you go to court, usually they will tell you that it's the person that didn't have the right - of - way's fault.

Of course you are. This is no different than "Am I at fault for seeing a car coming and jumping in front of it from the sidewalk." Look before you leap.

Yes This Sounds as To Be True. You Are At Fault For Making An Ilegal Turn. Which Caused An Accident. So It Is The Fault Of The One That Made The U Turn.

No. For example if a driver stops at green light and the driver to his rear hits him, it is the driver in front's fault.

The driver that hit you. Not knowing all the circumstances, the unlicensed driver would be at fault in the driving aspect, and in the fact that he/she should not have been on the road at all. Just a personal opinion

Entirely situation dependent. Need to know which vehicle had right-of-way in order to determine this.

If he had no stop sign it would be the fault of the one coming from the stop sign. If the second driver had a stop sign it would be his fault.

Only if the other driver was at fault. If the driver of the uninsured vehicle was at fault, the injured person would have to recover damages from them.

Obviously, there was traffic coming and you failed to yield to it. You will be charged.

User Avatar

If you have comprehensive insurance, your policy will cover the damages (less a deductable). In this case, your insurance company will sue the at fault driver. You can also sue the at fault driver for damages (if you do not have comprehensive).

User Avatar

well the person who is not looking coz he or she should be looking so the person coming round the corner it is not their fault so if you want any other questions answerd ask me!!!!!

User Avatar

You will be cited for driving without insurance and the other driver being at fault, him and his insurance are still liable for damages.

The fact driver B left the scene does not change that driver A is at fault (there are exceptions to driver A being at fault)Additional: While Driver A may have been the striking vehicle, Driver B MAY be at fault for "Changing Lanes Without Caution." Regardless of the circumstances of the collision itself, Driver B can be charged with "Leaving the Scene of an Accident."

User Avatar

Your question is slightly confusing. If you are saying that driver A was turning left and driver B attempted to pass them on the left then driver B is at fault because it is illegal to pass on the left except in a clearly marked passing zone (in which case as long as driver A had their directional signal on, driver B is still at fault).

User Avatar

No. No fault means exactly that. The driver not responsible for the accident cannot be held liable for injuries to any passengers in the at fault vehicle.

User Avatar

They can pursue him civilly, and the not at fault driver can also sue for damages.

In this state, your own company pays your hospital bills up to $10,000. The at fault driver pays all costs above that amount. The at fault driver pays all costs above that amount. The at fault driver pays for all car repair bills.

In the UK it is the fault of the driver behind Same here in the USA

User Avatar

Assuming that the at-fault driver maintained it at the time of the collision, his/her auto liability coverage would be triggered.

Opening a door into traffic makes the door opener at fault. If the door is opened safely and some driver then runs into it, the moving driver is at fault.

User Avatar

Unless there is mitigating circumstances the driver in the rear that hit the car making the turn is at fault. You must maintain a safe distance between you and the car in front in order to avoid just such an accident. Now if the driver making the turn did not give a proper signal and stopped suddenly to turn, the rear car may have a case for it partially being the driver that was turnings fault, due to no signal being given. Which direction was the car that hit you travelling? If it was behind you going in the same direction, the first answer is correct. However, if it was going in the opposite direction and hit your rear quarter panel, you were turning left with on-coming traffic - your fault. If it was traveling either direction on the road you were turning onto, it would depend on the presence of any stop or yield signs or traffic signals.

The driver of the car will always be held at fault. when police and ambulence come to the scene they will automatically say it was the bikers fault. even if it was the drivers fault
