If the other vehicle was parked, there was no other driver to have license, insurance or registration. The driver who hit the parked vehicle is at fault and is liable for all damages to the parked vehicle.
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.
a fast car that you race with
If a car is parked (so it wasnt moving, standing still), the other car is in fault.
The driver at fault is liable for the collision, regardless of the other driver's actions post-collision. The fleeing driver may later be brought up on Hit and Run or Leaving the Scene of an Accident charges, but that will not change the at fault liability.
You will be cited for driving without insurance and the other driver being at fault, him and his insurance are still liable for damages.
If your car was hit while parked and the other driver drove off, then you ask for payment under your collision coverage.
If you or the other driver makes a claim yes.
Yes, but bear in mind that a person (driver) is not automatically liable just because there was an accident There must be actual injury and or damages and the driver must be determined "At Fault" for the accident. Otherwise there is nothing for them to be liable for.
AnswerAs long as your vehicle was parked legally and you were able to obtain the other vehicle's insurance info, the driver of the other vehicle's insurance co. is resposible for all your damages.
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.
your insurance contract will say something like, ''promptly report all losses'' you should report it to your company..........it doesn't matter that other vehicle is uninsured.......if you are liable you are liable, and owe for his damage, whether or not he is insured......
