What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? KY
This happened in Lexington, KY yesterday just before 4 PM.
I was in the 'inside' lane of two left turn arrow lanes. We had the green arrow. There was a semi two vehicles ahead of me, so traffic was a little slow, but steady. I entered the intersection under a green arrow. The semi slowed traffic enough that I ended up in the intersection while it changed lights. I was almost through the intersection when the opposing traffic got their green light. A 2004 BMW launched forward at the light, and rammed into the side of my truck. I saw him coming and tried to close the small gap between me and the vehicle in front of me, but there wasn't enough space or time.
The insurance is talking about siding with him even though I was already in the intersection when he began moving.
Isn't there a law stating that if there is a vehicle in the intersection when your light turns green that you have to wait for the road to clear?
He was late for work, and wasn't paying attention to traffic, just the light.
You can see in this photo how hard he hit me. He hit me with a lot of force, considering I was only about 20ft in front of him. He spun my truck around, launching everything in the bed over several lanes.
What do I do now? I want my truck fixed, and I definitely don't want this on MY insurance.
