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?

Who pays when someone hits a parked car?

It's difficult to imagine circumstances in which the owner of the parked car could be considered to be at fault. Almost always, the driver of the moving car will be found liable. Even if the car was not parked properly, the driver of the other car generally will have had the "last clear chance" to avoid hitting it.

Who is at fault if a driver backs into a parked car that is parked past a no parking sign?

Some people incorrectly believe: "It is the parked car driver that is at fault because the car was parked past the sign." However, a parked car does not have the ability to see and avoid other cars; the drivers of the other cars are responsible for trying to avoid hitting any object that may be standing in the way, regardless of how it got there or whether it happens to be there legally. Could I legally crash into a parked car simply because it's time ran out on the parking meter? Parking laws rarely have anything to do with liability to other drivers who crash into each other. On the other hand, if the illegally parked car was violating a view to a intersection approach, and two OTHER cars collide "because of it", then the parking law COULD apply and may serve to apportion fault to the driver of the parked car who created the specific hazard against which the sign was posted, but most of the blame is on the other drivers who failed to exercise caution while driving. It still doesn't give someone the roght to drive into it.
