If you are backing out of a parking spot and the person beside you is coming forward and turning left out of theirs and you collide who is at fault?

In most cases parking lots are private property and are not subject to street laws. Therefore, no insurance company will assume liability.

You was backing out of a parking spot and the other vehicle was coming from your left and hit your left side of the car who is at fault?

The person driving in a forward direction has the right of way. If you are backing up, you must wait until traffic is clear before moving. Similar to a rear-ender, when the person hitting someone in front of them is always at fault.

What is grammatically correct - look forward to coming to your hotel or look forward coming to your hotel?

"Look forward to coming to your hotel" is correct. "Look forward" in the sense of "anticipating with pleasure" is always used with "to". For example, you might say, "I look forward to coming to your hotel this summer."It might be better, however, to say, "I look forward to staying at your hotel", since it is probably the stay you are looking forward to--not simply your arrival.

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.

Who is at fault if a car backing up to parallel park without signaling and backs into another coming causing little or no damage?

Assuming that the car hit was stopped when the other car was backing up, the one backing will be at fault. If there is no damage, or if it is below a certain threshold it may not even count as a collision.

What if two cars backing out of a parking spot and a vehicle coming from your right backs out the two cars collide right rear bumper to right rear bumper who is at fault?

Both partys are at fault and each party will need to file there vehicle under there own insurance. Parking lot accidents are always share fault unless one of the vehicle was parked, but since both vehicles were backing out at the same time, both partys are at fault unless you get a kind person to admit it was there fault.

Who is at fault when a person backing out of a parking spot backs into another car going the wrong way in a one-way parking lot?

Both of you are at fault to a degree. Depending on who primarily had the right of way, which in this case sounds like the person not in his or her parking space their insurance will actually be responsible for any damages that resulted. We are disputing this situation now. The insurance company says it was both parties fault. My question is, If I am traveling the interstate in the wrong direction and hit someone is it partialy their fault because they should have seen me coming? Wrong way mean "WRONG". I went through this exact thing, when a snowplow went up the wrong way in a marked one-way part of the parking lot row and hit my car as I was backing out. I thought for sure he would be held responsible. I wasn't expecting a truck from that direction. In the end, I was found to be at fault for backing out into him.

Can you be responsible while backing up in a parking lot?

Yes, you do not have the right of way to a car coming down the aisle, it is your responsibility to look for cars. Now if your almost all the way out and changing into drive from reverse and a car hurtles down and smashes into you then I am not sure whose fault it would be.

What is the state you get to before getting to California?

The answer depends on which direction you are coming from, and what part of California you are going to. There are several states that border California. These include the following: Arizona, Nevada, and Oregon. If you are coming from Texas, for instance, then you will come through New Mexico and Arizona before you get to California. If you are coming from Washington State, you will go through Oregon first. If you are coming from Colorado you could choose to go through New Mexico and Arizona to get to Southern California, or Utah and Nevada to get to Northern California. (California also borders Mexico if you are coming up from South America.)
