The insurance follows the VEHICLE not the driver. The coverage that is on the vehicle will apply. IF the damage is under the deductible...this may want to be paid out of pocket. Who should take responsibility...well, that can be argued, but usually a friend dhould offer to pay the damages as they did the damage. YOU caused the damage, YOU are responsible to pay to fix it, out of your OWN poocket. It is called being a "ADULT" and taking responsibility for your own actions.

Any time there's a claim which will be paid by the Insurance co, a deductible is paid by the insured.

Yes, in all states the person backing is responsible for any accidents.

as far as know the laws are the same in any state. the person backing up is responsible for making sure the path is clear behind their vrhicle.

The vehicle that was performing the backing maneuver is generally always the one at fault.

The law in every state is very clear about backing. The person backing up/out is at fault and responsible for any damages, regardless of the other vehicle's speed and/or position. It's also known as:"Limitations on backing".

Think about this your are backing up, and your neighbors little boy is playing in your yard, and he isn't supposed to be in your yard and you hit him, (a) did you see him? can you hit him because he is not supposed to be there? We are responsible to know what is behind us and be aware of where our car is going. Two wrongs do not make it right. I think you are responsible for hitting a car that is behind you when your are backing up.

O.K. The vehicle that is backing out is backing out from private property. The vehicle that is pulling away should have the right of way. You see when a vehicle is trying to enter a Highway via driveway, parking lot, ect. he is ASKING for the right of way and he is responsible for yielding. Hope this helps.

Generally, the person backing out is at fault. If you are both backing out you're probably both at fault and will probably share the cost of repair, with each repairing their own. yes because you were backing out and they hit your car its their fault!!!!!!! yes because you were backing out and they hit your car its their fault!!!!!!!

If you're responsible for the accident, you're still responsible even if the other person hasn't got a driver's license.

By backing up Manually one would have to do it yourself correctly every time "by hand", while automatically you insert your desired settings into Windows or another backup software to do it for you for as long as you want.

The backing. The other car has the right of way wether they saw you or not doesn't change that. If it was parked, that's even worse.

Fault here would likely be shared. On the one hand, the driver backing really has no legal right to the lane they are backing into - you cannot cut someone off while you are backing up. But it seems you have described a situation in which the individual backing was well into the backing process when someone came along, from quite a distance, and hit them. Hence the driver in the lane already probably had the last clear chance to avoid the accident but chose not to and would hence bear the majority of the fault.

The driver travelling in reverse is almost always responsible. In this case, he would have had a duty to ensure the road was clear before backing out of the driveway.
