Q: My fault failure to yield. Changed if other driver was speeding?
I stoped and then proceeded through intersection. There was a curve where he was coming from and partially instructed view. As I went through the intersection his car hit mine. Would they change the at fault if he was found to be speeding. He's trying to sue me now and they did no investigation at the scene. Trying to get the driving data from the cars computer to see if it recorded his speed and breaking.
A: I assume you mean that his view was partially OBSTRUCTED. And, if your view was obstructed as well, yes, you could well argue that you would have safely made it through the intersection, or he would have been able to stop, if he had not been speeding.
