A: L turn cases are challenging.

the person making the L turn is PRESUMED to be at fault.

that does not mean you are at fault, but you may be determined to be 50% or 70% or 30% at fault.

are their wits?

that person turning Left has to wait until it is safe to turn.

i suspect the other driver's ins co will deny and delay any claim you make.
