You didn't say where on the drivers side, it could have some bearing on harness damage. You have checked the fuses I assume. So then you need to check the sockets and grounds for the rear lights, if it has a trailer plug check that also, if everything checks good then start heading forward until you find the break in the circuit, a good shop manual will help.

if your tail lights or your brake lights don't work it could possibly be the bulbs or it could be the fuses!
