Who would be at fault in this car crash? ?

In a Residental street car A is driving along to leave the street and is around 3 metres from the junction where they plan to turn left, car B is turning right into the Residental street and cuts the corner. Car A and car B collide. Damage to car A is on drivers door. Damage to car B is on drivers side near back wheel arch. Both drivers blame each other. Driver A says driver B cut the corner and was on her side of the road and hit the side of her car. Driver B said driver A should have stopped.... who would most likely be at fault here?

    Split liability - proceeding when the way was not clear caused the accident.  I'm a little confused.  How would car B's driver's side near back wheel damage car A's driver's door?  I would understand front end damage, but it is HIGHLY unusual for the side of each car to be damaged.

    I'll still say split liability, probably 60/40, 60 on car B.

    Car B is at fault. If car A had been on car B's side of the road, the damage to car A would have frontal, the fact that car B struck car A to the driver's door, is evidence that car B had overshot the corner and encroached on car A's side of the road.

    You must be in one of those countries that drive on the wrong side of the road.

    As I understand the situation Driver A is turning left, but the damage is on the driver's door which is understandable as that is the side towards the center of the intersection.  What is strange is that Car B is turning right and is hit on the driver's side , which is on the far side from Car A. (?)  If he cuts the corner there should be lots of room (?)

    Driver B is at fault.  No one ever admits to liability.

    Nobody here can tell you.  Only the involved insurance companies can, do and will determine fault (Liability) as the result of a crash.

    Not enough information for anyone to make that call.
