Ok, I had an accident at 12:30 today.
A truck went into the driver side of me, turned into my lane without indicating, I braked but he completely scraped the side of me.
I am unharmed, I'm not going to sue for whiplash and all that rollox. I want my car fix and my NCB intact.
Here is the route taken around the roundabout first, I want to turn right onto the A road. So this is the route I took, the truck is moving starting at the blue point where I have met him. My route is green. Red is the point of collision.
Firstly anything wrong with the route I have taken?

Here is the damage to the car
Most importantly there are tyre marks on the ground where I have had to avoid the truck and the tread matches my cars tread. I also have abrasion on the tyre wall. These show the exact point of impact. I'm not after all going to be driving so close to the pavement. (Green is point of impact,bit of paper as reference also)

Overall View of Bend
You can use the points I have marked for reference.
Now if I am at all wrong I will put my hands up and front the bill rather than going through insurance. I am pretty sure I have done nothing wrong here and the truck driver hasn't seen me. I didn't want to argue at the side of the road and he had a passenger with him who is obviously going to side with him.
I have no witness other than this evidence.
Is it my fault or Truck Drivers Fault?
