My brother driving about 25-30 mph had a green light going straight, when all of a sudden a car who also had a green light began turning left and they collided. We have a witness who gave her statement to the police, saying the other driver clearly tried to cut through and make the left turn while my brother was driving straight. She probably didn’t see him, because he’s driving up a small hill, and he most likely saw her last minute. Who’s most likely at fault in this situation? Also my brother went to the hospital due to his inability to move his neck.
Your posting still does not contain enough information to properly assess fault. (Some "left turn" cases go 100% against the left turning driver, while sometimes there is a division of fault between the drivers.)
Nonetheless, your brother is best served by consulting directly with a lawyer who handles this type of case. The Avvo “Find a Lawyer” link is a good place to start: https://www.avvo.com/find-a-lawyer
most left turn accidents are the fault of the left turning vehicle. Remember however new york is a "no fault" state and you cant bring a personal injuy lawsuit unless you have "...serious injuies...".
