They are responsible if you know who they are,but if not,with State Farm you get a police report within 24 hours you can file it under uninsured motorist.

The driver of the moving vehicle is at fault. The parked vehicle may have been parked illegally, but it didn't hit anything.

Call ambualnce if injuries Leave name and contact information on damaged vehicle

If the other vehicle was parked, there was no other driver to have license, insurance or registration. The driver who hit the parked vehicle is at fault and is liable for all damages to the parked vehicle.

the owner of the vehicle that hit a pack car will be liable for the loss, and later subrogate from the unpermited driver

If you hit a parked car, the deductible applies to your vehicle, not the parked car. The other vehicle is covered by your liability coverage and there is no deductible attached. You pay the deductible on the repairs to your vehicle, usually to the shop after the work is completed, the insurance company handles the balance directly.

i was told its because they are for when you are parked only, and if you drive with them on someone could mistake that you're parked and hit you.

You hit a parked vehicle. No matter how or where it was parked, you are responsible for the damages. If you hit the car, you could have seen the car if you had been looking. You have no insurance which is a violation of the law. Pay the owner of the car you hit and accept responsibility for your poor driving, and stop trying to blame this on how the vehicle you hit was parked. It is your fault plain and simple.

Either the parking brake / transmission gave out or sombody else hit it for you.

if "your" vehicle has NO insurence, you are not entitled to get nothing..and the fact that it was parked in a "public place" makes for an even stronger agument against any suit seeking damages.

no minimum speed. the vehicle can be stopped and someone else hit it and bags will deploy depends on where it was hit and how hard

It depends if the illegally parked car is a danger or interuption to the normal flow of traffic. For instance if someone is parked in a handicap spot illegally, and you hit them, obviously it is your fault. You need to be able to prove that due to the other persons actions of illegally parking, it inevitably led to you hitting their vehicle. Just remember, you are the one moving, and you are the one who hit the "non-moving" object.

Hopefully that person that hit you has insurance, other wise the problem is yours. IF you had an existing insurance policy on another vehicle (traded cars or adding a second car to the household) your carrier will PROBABLY cover this one.

Sorry but you are still at fault if you hit an illegally parked vehicle. The key word is that the vehicle was parked and not moving. This placed the only one in the accident who could have prevented it is you. You are required to look where you are going, safely go around or stop before hitting the vehicle. I know it makes you made when people do this stopping where they shouldn't, but again you have an obligation to look and stop.

Of course. In fact, place of incident DOES NOT MATTER. The fact is you hit their car on your property, even though whether or not it was your property has nothing to with it. You made the contact, therefore you are liable.

Yes. Being illegally parked does not affect fault. If you strike a parked vehicle, it is ALWAYS your fault because you have a duty to ensure the way was clear before moving.

When referring to traffic regulations or tickets, to "hit" someone is to be the striking vehicle in a collision.

It depends.... If the girl that hit your car has car insurance that covers her while driving another persons vehicle, go after her and her insurance company. But if not, go after the owner of the vehicle, they are responsible for the vehicle at all times. The insurance company doesnt care who is driving.
