Yes This Sounds as To Be True. You Are At Fault For Making An Ilegal Turn. Which Caused An Accident. So It Is The Fault Of The One That Made The U Turn.
If the turning vehicle was struck by a vehicle entering the roadway it would be the the fault of the vehicle entering the roadway.HOWEVER, if the entering vehicle was struck by the turning vehicle, it is the fault of the turning driver.
Yes! It happened to me in Georgia!
In California, according to LAPD, a stop is 5 seconds at the stop line. It would be the driver who ran the stop and struck the left turning vehicle. Of course its the CHIP that works witht he DMV to dish out driving laws. Check out your state highway patrol or DMV website.
USUALLY THE PERSON IN THE REAR UNLESS THE FIRST DRIVER DID NOT SGINAL OR CUT THE OTHER DRIVER OFF
As a GENERAL rule... It depends on where the vehicle pulling out of the side road is hit. If it is in the front half of the vehicle, it is obvious to the police and judge that that car pulled out in front of the oncoming car and did not give that car time to react by slowing down. If it was struck in the rear part of the vehicle the oncoming car should have had enough time to react and therefore it would normally be his/her fault.
I don't know the details but most likely the vehicle that struck you is at fault if he/she was traveling in the same direction and lane behind you.
Since I don't know all the facts, I can only make an assumption. So I'l tell you what happened to me. I was traveling along a through road and a car came through a stop sign from my right without stopping at the sign. The car struck the side of my vehicle. The driver of the vehicle that ran the stop sign and struck my vehicle was issued a ticket for failure to yield. His insurance company wrote me a check for the damages without question. The other driver was at fault. Hope this applies to you.
This is because your vehicle is insulated from the ground by its rubber tires. Making it less likely to be struck.
If there was nothing the driver could do to avoid hitting the debris and then it struck another vehicle, then I would say 'no". If you going 70 mph on the freeway and cannot move over to another lane due to traffic, etc. there was nothing the driver could do to avoid it.
If my memory serves me correctly, it would be the fault of the driver who was in reverse if that driver struck the other car mostly on its broad side. After all, the driver who is pulling out of a parking lot has the right-of-way as opposed to someone in a parking spot. As far as an insurance claim goes the drivers would have to have insurance, and the driver who was struck would want to make sure they were driving within the bounds of the law (such as observing posted speed limits, stop signs, direction arrows,etc.).Hope this helps.
The driver.Another View: It depends on the circumstances of the collision.If the door struck the side of the moving vehicle, then the person opening the door of the parked car is at fault.If the moving vehicle struck the open door of the parked car, then the moving car is at fault.
Caitlyn Jenner (then Bruce Jenner) was involved in an accident in February 2015 that resulted in the death of another driver. Jenner's vehicle rear-ended another car, resulting in a head-on collision by that car with a third vehicle. Kim Howe, the driver of the car struck by Jenner, was killed. Jenner faced possible charges for manslaughter caused by unsafe operation of a motor vehicle.
In most states, it doesn't matter the reason a driver struck a pedestrian or if the pedestrian saw the vehicle prior to being in a position to be struck--the pedestrian always has the right-of-way so the driver is always at-fault.
Assuming you have the information on the driver of the vehicle that struck you it is best to consult with an attorney in your state who is experienced with such cases. They can better inform you of related laws and how they affect your particular circumstances.
This question is impossible to specifically answer without a lot more information. However, it possible to discuss some variables which would impact the determination of fault. For example, IF the driver pulling out [vehicle 1] confirmed, BEFORE moving his/her vehicle, that it WAS SAFE to do so, and then WHILE he/she was pulling away, a person in the second vehicle opened the door in front of, or into contact with, the first vehicle, THEN THE FAULT would lie with the person who opened the door of the second vehicle. The driver of vehicle 1 is obligated to avoid a collision if possible, but is not responsible if circumstances preclude his/her ability to do so. On the other hand, IF, for example, the driver of vehicle 1 actually observed the open door of vehicle 2, and pulled out in spite of an obvious hazard, and struck the open door, then the fault should lie with driver 1. Also, if driver 1 pulled out WITHOUT EVEN LOOKING, then again, the fault should be with driver 1. Determination of fault in this type of collision if very difficult to accomplish, unless for example, a video surveilence camera clearly captured the above discussed actions, or the absense of those actions, the TIMING of those actions, and WHO did WHAT, WHEN. Good luck. j3h
The driver of the vehicle in motion. The fact that the vehicle that was struck was illegally parked has not bearing on the responsbility of the driver of the vehicle that caused the damage. Well, technically you would be at fault. You can always take it to small claims court that the car was blocking you in, by being parked illegaly in the fire lane, you thought you could get out, but underestimated the driving room. Also, to help you is to get pictures of the car in the fire lane. OR, you could consider it a hit and run?
No, he wasn't. Charlie and Sam were struck by a drunk driver after the baseball game.
Yes, she did. She was struck by a drunk driver.
It would be vehicle 1 because it made vehicle 2 get hit by vehicle three who had nothing to do with it
On April 23rd, 2013, there was an auto accident near Citi Field. A driver lost control of his vehicle and struck a mechanic, who was killed in the collision.
She was struck by a first year driver.
getting struck by a vehicle
In February 2015, Jenner was driving alone in his Cadillac Escalade when it collided with another car on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu, CA. This caused the death of the driver of the vehicle he struck, as it was then hit head-on by another car.
If you were forced into striking another vehicle by a vehicle which struck you first, the vehicle that struck you is (usually) responsible for the entire accident. However, if you are required to have insurance in your state, that will not get you out of any ticket becauise of your lack of insurance.
