Where do i start Had an accident today and was just hoping on some opinions to put my mind at ease.
Basically i was heading down a main A road at 40mph (the limit) following traffic (leaving a safe gap in front doing nothing wrong) and some guy pulls out infront of me trying to cut accross my lane and join the traffic on the other side. So basically i slam on the brakes and try to swerve but...... BUMB i hit him at about 10mph-ish.
Now theres not much damage but it'll need repairing through the insurance and wot not but i just wanna check that theres no chance of me being held responsible? or it even being 50/50 as i dont wanna loose my no claims
Am i correct in thinking its the person who is pulling out of the junction responsibility to check its clear and safe to do so. And thus making him responsible? I just want some opinions as im worring now because the guy wouldn't admit it was his fault at the time
Few pics to help.
Done for insurance purposes (will be emailed to my insurance company asap)
Pics on my phone with cars still in place
Any opinions welcome, just wanna know if theres any chance ill be held responsible which i cant see how!? or any chance of 50/50?
