A: without more info it is hard to answer.

I doubt if you will be able to prove you were not at fault.

however, if you are worried about the other driver suing you, THEN THEY have to prove YOU were at fault.

you would need a lawyers assistance and unless you had major injuries i doubt if you can find a lawyer that would be interested
