    Insurance issue 8th May 18 at 11:37 PM
    Hi

    I am a regular on another forum and have been directed here for advice if anyone can help. I also posted on the insurance forum

    Another driver jumped lanes and crashed into me I was within my right of way to turn

    Insurance have now deemed it 50/50 as they have received no reply from the police. The police attended as they were passing and confirmed the other driver was at fault as they had the cctv footage checked

    I was advised the insurers can ask for a copy of the cctv recording

    Can anyone advise the way forward

    Thanks

    As previously advised to you, when you are ever unhappy with an insurer you should make a formal complaint to the insurer and escalate to the FOS if you are unhappy with the reply or you are ignored for 8 weeks


    (Police opinion on liability is irrelevant)

    Having the right of way doesn't absolve you of blame in an accident. If you continue to drive in the "Its my right of way" bloodyminded attitude some have and it results in an accident that could have been avoided, which they usually can, then you will be held to blame.

    Read the Highway Code. No-one ever has "right of way". There is no such thing in law.
