My question involves an accident that occurred in the state of: GA
First of all thank you for taking your time to look and possibly give your opinion on this.
The other day I was involved in a fender bender and I would like to know if I was completely in the wrong. It's a rainy morning, still dark and very congested traffic conditions. I am behind 2 vehicles waiting to merge onto a 2 lane highway from an access road. The main traffic is coming to a stop as the light at the intersection was red. The 2 cars in front of me merge on the highway and now it's my turn to do so. At this point the main highway traffic is almost at a full stop right up to where I am. As I am yielding I see a 2 car length gap so I pull out close to the rear bumper of the car in front of me... at this point I see the driver to my left purposely speed up to close the gap and block me from merging even though the front half of my car is already in the lane... I try to pull out but he continues to roll right into my car damaging my driver's side door, front fender and all the way down to my headlight. The officer does not issue me a ticket yet in the report states that I am at fault for failing to yield (even though he did verbally mention to me that the driver seemed very distracted and I did see him on his phone). Am I at fault here because the other driver purposely obstructed me from merging by speeding up and was clearly distracted by his phone.
