When a vehicle is changing lanes and is struck from the rear who is at fault?
If the car is Hit on right side from pulling out of side road who fault is it?
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.

Who is at fault I was making a left turn and I was struck in the passenger rear panel of my vehicle?
Who is at fault if your vehicle is hit in the side from vehicle 2 not stopping at stop sign?
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.

Who is at fault in an accident where a vehicle is backing out of a parking spot and strikes a vehicle that is turning into the parking lot in Texas?
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.

Who is at fault if the driver of a parked car pulls away and hits the open door of the parked car in the next space?
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
Who is at fault when you back into a car that is illegally parked in the fire lane.?
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?

Who was with Caitlyn Jenner in his car accident?
What happens when an insured car hit you and you hit another car but your car isn't insured?
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.
