When the police determine fault, there is little you can do. You could fight it out in court, but it may end up wasting more money in the end.

Who is liable when car a leaving out of parking lot backs into car b that is behind car and car b has no insurance and no license?

Parking lot accident are the most awful claims to deal with. Unless you have witnesses or video of the accident. It is a case of he said/she said. Since all parking lot of private property, it is not a policy issue either. Most of these cases end up being a 50/50, 60/40, or 30/70 type of at fault claim. If you are ever involved in an accident in a parking lot, find witnesses and get their information! Also, check to see if there are cameras in the lot and get footage of the incident.

Who's at fault when partially pulled out of a paralleled parking spot a car hits you?

If you are pulling into traffic, from a being parked, you have interrupted the flow of traffic. That's the tricky part about parallel parking; when to do it and how not to interfere with cars. But there is also a last chance clause; if a car sees you from a good distance away they should make every effort to stop, even if you are blocking their way. If the accident was avoidable, the car striking the car in a parking manuver can also be held liable.

In the motion of backing into a parking spot and another car comes and tries to pull forward into the spot next to me but turns wide and i end up tapping the drivers side fender whose fault is it?

From the explanation given in the discussion area - it would unfortunately appear as if both drivers were at fault. The backing driver for not being aware of his surroundings, and the other driver for failing to yield to the backing car when he saw that the backing car was already in motion.

Who is at fault when you are backing out of a parking space and another car makes a left hand turn into the parking lot behind your car after you begun to back out?

Most of the time this will be a 50/50. If there is Video evedence or a witness that says one or other car was being careless or driving to fast or there is other evedence that could change. One of the things to look at is did the backing car back into the side of the other car or did the backing vehical get hit in the side and how far down the side? If you have evedence of this you might convince the judge and your insurance company who was "At Fault"

What happens if someone backs into you in a parking lot?

It depends - was it hit and run ? Were both cars backing or one parked and one backed into it? If the other party is no where to be found, typically your Collision coverage ( if you have this coverage) will pay after you pay the deductible. It may also increase your future rates (and /or loss of discounts for being accident free) - so use some logic if it over $1,000 to repair.

If a party flees the scene of an accident how will this affect determination of liability if after being found he claims the other party was at fault?

Certaily fleeing the scene of an accident is both against the law, and hurts his credibility, but what exactly are the facts of loss? Was he at fault? Just because he fled doesn't necessarily mean he was liable for the accident. If you could provide more details surrounding the facts of the accident I could be of greater assistance to you.

Who is at fault when backing out of a parking space and one side is blinded by a larger vehicle parked next to you and you slowly back up and hit a car coming around the blind side and they saw you.?

It could be a "no fault" situation. If the driver of a vehicle sees a vehicle that is backing they should exercise caution and either sound their horn (to alert the backing vehicle) and/or they should slow or stop or take similar action to avoid or to prevent an accident. Secondly, the person who is backing should only back up when it is safe to do. This may mean getting out to check for any obstacles at the back or side then proceeding if it is safe to do so. And if necessary, stop again, get out and check again. If the person who is backing up happens to be a person with disabilities and may not be able to quickly and easily get in and out of the vehicle to check for obstacles, then before backing, if you noticed a larger vehicle next to yours that will block your view, then ask another person if they would mind being a momentary guide to assist you while you back out of the parking space. Again, in some areas it could be a no fault situation whereas drivers of both vehicles should take actions and steps to prevent or avoid an accident. In other areas it may be required that fault be assessed. In the case of an accident in this kind of situation it may be best to consult with a lawyer, and if there were any witness to have their name and contact information and to give them yours. It is the responsibility of all drivers to drive safely and defensively.
