At the traffic light, there were two lanes for left turn. I was on the very left one and the Chevrolet truck was at my right side. When the left arrow light switched to green, I turned left. At the same time the Chevrolet truck turned left and passed over me to cross over my lane. Even my speed was very slow and I braked immediately but the truck was so close when he crossed my vehicle. So I hit his back. He did not keep his lane when turning left and crossed my vehicle unsafe. In this case, even though I hit him, was this my fault or his fault?
From your description, it sounds like the other driver primarily may have been at fault for crossing into your lane in an unsafe manner, but it is hard to tell without complete details regarding the incident. As recommended, if no one was hurt simply notify your insurer. Your insurer will conduct an investigation and fight it out with the other driver's insurer to reach a resolution.
