Q: if a person turning to street on a red and car hits him from the opposite side whose at fault..
the light turn red but from point of view it was yellow.. and person driving the opposite side hits the person that was turning.. there is camera footage from another driver that was turning on the same street.. on the street that he turned into the light turn green.. looks like the guy was turning on a red light and driver from opposite ran a red light..
A: If the light turned red, it's supposed to appear red from every point of view. After that, it is impossible to figure out what happened from your post. If the traffic lights are out of phase, the city might be at fault. A Government Tort Claim has to be filed within 6 months of the collision. If someone ran a red light, they are at fault. Talk to an attorney for a more detailed evaluation of your potential claim. Consultations are free.
Based on the information provided, it seems that the person turning on a red light may be at fault for the accident. In general, drivers who are turning on a red light are required to yield to all other traffic and pedestrians, and they must only proceed when it is safe to do so.
If there is camera footage that shows the person turning on a red light, this could be used as evidence to support the argument that they were at fault for the accident. However, it's important to note that the specific facts of the case, including the speed of the drivers and other factors, may also be relevant in determining fault.
Ultimately, fault in an accident will depend on a variety of factors, including the laws of the state where the accident occurred and the specific circumstances of the case. It may be helpful to consult with an attorney or your insurance company to better understand your legal rights and obligations in this situation.
