Beitrag Insurance claiming partially my fault for their driver turni
Hi All!
So I recently was in an accident in NY. I was driving on a segment of a local road, in the middle lane, and needed to make a right at the upcoming intersection. There was a commercial truck in front of me. The right lane was a right turn only lane. I merged into the right lane and since the truck was going slower than I was, I was passing the truck. Just as the front half of my car passed the truck, the driver of the truck decided to make a right turn into my vehicle, hitting my driver-side front door. Apparently, he was making a wide turn onto the Dunkin Donuts driveway that I was passing on the right of me just at that moment, and the driver didn't see me passing him.

Sounds like he drove into me and his insurance should pay for my damages. But the driver is saying that he had his right turn signal on, and his insurance is saying that because of that, I shouldn't have been passing him, and because of this, they are assigning 65% of the fault to the truck driver, but 35% of the fault to me. I don't think I saw his blinker on, but even if he did have it on - he was driving slowly and I would think he would wait to make sure his path is clear before making a turn or merging anywhere, so I was unlikely to start braking hard to wait for him to make a decision about where he was going. I see cars with blinkers on for minutes all the time before they remember about them and turn them off. Typically, if I see someone turn their blinker on to merge into my lane when we're going about the same speed, I'll definitely let them in. But if I'm going faster than them, I don't think I should start braking for every turned on blinker.

Please help, what should I do about his insurance claiming that I'm 35% at fault for this?
