My question involves a traffic accident in the State of: Utah
While riding my motorcycle with a group of two other riders we were stopped at an intersection waiting to turn left (southbound). This was downtown and traffic was bad due to an event. When our light turned green, there were still (SB) cars blocking the eastbound travelers from crossing the road who had filled the intersection trying to make the light. Since they were blocking oncoming (EB) traffic for us, we proceeded to turn left into an open(SB)lane. We could see the stopped eastbound traffic letting us through since they were currently unable to move, the first rider completed the turn, I was next and following closely to him when one of the eastbound drivers decided to go around traffic while we were still completing our turn, knowingly seeing us, and accelerating from a stop, without braking or swerving the driver deliberately hit me mid turn and caused me to crash my motorcycle. I was relatively uninjured. I was cited failure to yield on a green light, yet the situation was a bit more complex than that at the time. The officer said my story made sense and he would have made the same turn seeing that it was safe. The other driver wasn't given any ticket regardless of the fact the they deliberately drove right into me. An accident very easily avoided considering the slow speed everyone was moving. Now the driver is holding me accountable for repairs to their vehicle, even though the damages to my bike are far worse.
Do I have a chance at fighting the ticket in court? Or even at having her insurance cover damages to my motorcycle given they willing drove right into me?
Any help is very much appreciated.
