Hard to say. Possibly equal fault by both parties but most likely the person backing out.
The person who is backing out of the parking space
be sure that the way is clear, look over your back shoulder while backing, and yield to approaching traffic.never rely on your rearview mirrow alone turn around and look.
The person backing out. If you were in the lane/road behind them they needed to use caution when backing out.
The car that is reversing out of the parking.
The person backing out.
both of you for not looking back
Any time the driver who is backing is at fault, in all 50 states.
If it only happens when backing up, you may have the parking brake engaged.
Were you both backing at the same time 'at impact'? Will depend on where damage is etc, but assuming both backing and bumpers hit more than likely will be a 50/50 liablitly decision made.
The person at fault would be the one backing into a parking space. Because they are going to look at it as, your supposed to pull into the parking space front first, not backing in. So it would be your fault. But I'm sure that both of you would get a ticket or something else, because they hit you, and you are violating parking lot conduct.
Depends on the jurisdiction, but typically, two vehicles backing up is a 50/50.
If you strike him - you are at fault. He can be charged with the No Parking violation but YOU are charged with the collision.
The driver backing up. Unless you can prove the other car was driving unsafly.
backing out- you have considerably less vision
You are at fault.
The guy that is walking.
Your mum, Steve.
Backing up or entering a lane of traffic is always determined to be the cause of an accident. Drivers in those situations are required to yield to approaching traffic.
I would be interested to see how this plays out. I know my dad was backing out of a parking space slowly because he had two larger cars on either side of him and a driver was driving down the lane in the parking lot and rearended him. The other driver didnt stop for at least 20 feet so he was going pretty fast, but they still gave my dad the ticket for unsafe backing. But if both of you were backing out in a parking lot I dont know how that would play out. Did you guys call the cops? I suppose the cop could have given you both a ticket for unsafe backing??
Well if you were backing in and hit someone then it is your fault. But if they hit you, then it is their fault.
The person backing out due to the other car having the right-of-way.
The person driving through. If you're backing out then you do not have the right of way.
The person backing out of the lot. Cars in the travel lane have right of way.
A vehicle traveling in a parking lot has established use of the lane and the right of way. A vehicle in a parking space and backing into the lane must yield to oncoming traffic. Therefore, if a vehicle is backing out of a parking space and pulls into the path of an oncoming vehicle that has already established the lane, the vehicle backing would be at fault for the accident. However, if the vehicle which established use of the lane had an opportunity to avoid hitting the vehicle backing out of the space and failed to do so, there could be comparative negligence on both vehicles or on the one who had the opportunity to avoid the accident.
