Hello my name is***** will help you.
Who are you saying is to blame?
Thanks. I think this is 50/50.
He is at fault because he is in the wrong lane and by the time you had begun to pull inside him and go round he hit you. He entered your lane.
However you are also liable because when he indicated, he had right of way. There was plenty of room and you should have slowed to allow traffic change lanes as he was plenty ahead of you.
As such I think you are both liable. He is probable more liable than you so 60/40 but I think there is fault on both sides.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
No, none whatsoever. People often say sorry after an accident even if they are not at fault. It is human nature.
I realise how the vehicles are crossing, I have viewed the footage.
You can take it to Court if you wish, but I do think you are partly liable.
Does that clarify?
