Las Vegas, NV asked in Personal Injury, Traffic Tickets, Car Accidents and Insurance Defense for Arizona

Q: If a car ahead of me runs out of gas and shuts off in the process of pulling over to the only spot that's not going to

Block traffic and their hazard lights are on, and I crash into them t-boning them, who's fault is it. 3 Lane road with a break in the median she's in the 3rd lane and I'm in the 1st lane the only safe place to pull over is in the median break. Her hazard lights were on as soon as she ran out of gas, I saw them come on before her vehicle entered my lane. I have insurance but the vehicle she was driving doesn't.

A: An Arizona attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. It's possible liability could be apportioned between both of you, depending on how the accident is evaluated by the insurance company investigator. If they didn't have insurance, check the terms of your UM (uninsured motorist) coverage. I hope you're both okay. Good luck
