    Answered . 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.

    Answered . 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.

    Answered . 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.
