Hello. I was involved in an accident about a week ago, and I am getting the run around from the insurance companies, and was just wondering what GT thought about it. Here is what happened: It is about 10:30PM at night when I pull up to an intersection. I wait for the light to turn green. It is about a 10-15 second wait. It turned green, and I proceeded through the light. Another vehicle ran the red light, and our vehicles collided. Now, I am being told that this was 50/50 liability becuase- "Vehicle number one was there to be seen regardless of the light color on pass and that the setback line on W/B Industrial was at least 20' from the point of impact to the driver." "One can't simply hit the gas pedal without making sure the intersection is clear. We find equal fault and in Tennessee, this bars any recovery to yourself." Now, here are some notes on the intersection. Speed limit is 45MPH, which equals to 65 feet per second. Yellow light duration is 4.5 seconds. "All red" duration is 3.5 seconds. The angle of the intersecton is is about 125 degrees. Based on the damage to both vehicles, it is apparent the other vehicle was still traveling at regular speed. Based on those numbers above, I estimated the vehicle was just over 500 feet away from the intersection when the light turned yellow. Not only that, but factor in the reaction time and the time it took to travel into the intersection, and that places the vehicle even further from the intersection at the yellow light change. Besides that, you can include the fact that people tend to speed through yellow lights, rather than slow down, so that increases the distance traveled in any given amount of time. The driver admitted to running the red light to the officer on scene and got a citation for it. They place the blame on me for not making sure the intersection was clear. The vehicle was still traveling likely at the original speed when we collided. So there would be no way I would have seen the vehicle in the intersection long enough to react. Any advice or comments on this? Am I in the right or should I have looked both directions before accelerating?
