Hit another car during traffic jam. Adjuster ruled both parties at fault

Was driving straight on a (45m/h) 5 lane rd. My lane was clear. 3 center lanes were backed up with traffic. Driver 1 (driving opposite on farthers line) was getting ready to turn. I was going straight. A driver (from a middle lane) gave a car right of way into my lane to go into hardees lot. I hit on breaks when I saw mustang approaching my lane. Next thing I hit the mustang. Called my liability insurance. I called his inssurance and his adjuster put both drivers at fault leaving me with a car that berely drives. How can I appeal and what do I need to prove that it was not my fault?... Got the trafic report and he got a ticket and document states that a driver gave him right of way.
