If your car is parked and your passenger opens the door right into a truck attempting to go around you who is at fault?
This type of claim can go either way. It could be said that the passenger should have looked before opening the door. It could also be said that the driver of the other vehicle did not have the right of way going around on the passenger's side. It is up to the insurance companies to decide. If you are getting resistance from the other driver to claim responsibility, you should make a claim with your insurance carrier and contact a car accident attorney immediately as the insurance carrier may not want to pay for the damages. Fisher & Associates in Colorado is proficient in these kinds of cases.
As long as the parked vehicle is parked properly and not illegally parked in any manner, then the vehicle that rear-ended the parked car is at fault. Now if the parked car is sitting illegally (such as double parked or parked in a no parking zone, etc.) then the parked car is at fault or even both the parked car AND the car that hits it are BOTH at fault.
Who is at fault in California when a parked car opens their door into the passenger side of your car while you are driving?
This depends. Often, it is the parked car's fault because the door can be considered as an obstruction. However, it is possible that the passing car may be at fault, especially if it can be proven that its driving could endanger the parked car. Always check with the claims department of your insurer and the local law. Local law tends to place fault with the parked car.

What happens if a fully insured driver admits fault for hitting a parked vehicle but the other driver involved in the accident had no license insurance or registration?
Of course it is your fault. The fact that the car was illegally parked is of no consequence. You didn't look where you were backing or you would not have hit the parked car. Would you have hit this car if you had been looking? Perhaps the illegally parked car is a Mini Cooper, parked illegally 1 foot behind a Hummer and therefore not visable when the driver looks before backing up...
No Fault insurance ONLY deals with medical injuries to you if you are driving. No Fault has nothing to do with property damage liability. If you hit a parked car, then your Property Damage Liability coverage would pay to repair the parked car and your own Collision coverage (if you have it...it's optional) would pay to repair your car.

ADDITIONAL INFO: Though each accident is handled on a case by case basis, generally the operator of the moving vehicle would be at fault, however instances where a vehicle is illegally parked or grossly impeding traffic may warrant further investigation. In such cases…
