Yes. Sure, the car shouldn't have been there and perhaps was there illegally but that does not let anyone off the liability hook for causing property damage or injury while driving a vehicle. It would be a different story if you were driving in your own lane and the other driver, illegally parked or not, came out in front of you and caused the collision. However, there may be circumstances where the illegally parked car was a contributing factor in an otherwise avoidable collision, say, where it was blocking your view or otherwise creating a hazard that you were attempting to avoid when the collision occurred. If so, whoever left it there may be partially liable for YOUR damages.
