While the other party's insurance adjuster may claim you should have seen the other driver a skilled personal injury/property damage attorney will be able to handle that issue quite well. Contact a local MD attorney ASAP - most offer free consultations.
This is not intended to be legal advise or as legal representation. I am a California personal injury attorney . Be aware that every state has its own statute of limitations; and statutes & case laws that govern the handling of these matters.
Avvo lawyers can't determine fault from a short posting. If you were injured, call one of the above lawyers in your state to investigate, otherwise, your insurance company will resolve it.
If you had the right of way, then it is almost certainly NOT your fault. I assume that witnesses can testify that you had the green light. Was the other driver ticketed? Did the other driver admit fault? Other witnesses?
Give me a quick shout if you want to set up a meeting to make sure your rights are protected. I meet clients in Rockville, PIkesville, Greenbelt, and DC.
