Actually, hitting a deer is generally covered by your comprehensive coverage, not collision. Comprehensive covers "acts of God," which include hitting animals because it was an act of God that the animal was there at that time. Reading your insurance policy will clarify exactly which kinds of claims are covered by which types of insurance. There are 3 catagories for car insurance: 1. Liability (covers you if you hit someone else) 2. Comprehensive (covers you if an uninsured driver hits you), and 3. Collision (covers you if you hit something -for instance, a deer-)

You should run the claim through your insurance first. The neighbor or their insurance company can come after you for damages.

In most situations, it would be the car who was driving through. However, the insinuation here is that you are in a parking lot on private proprety, in which case in most states it would be a no-fault accident, in which case both drivers would be responsible for their own damages.

It depends on your driving record, type of truck and what insurance company you go through.

Auto insurance consists of both liability insurance and physical damage coverage. Collision coverage is part of the physical damage section of an insurance policy and is designed to either repair or replace your vehicle if you are involved in an accident up to the fair market value of the vehicle. Collision will pay for both damages caused in an at-fault accident and damages caused in a not at-fault accident if the other party did not have insurance. If the other party did have insurance and they were responsible for the damages, the other party's liability insurance would pay for your vehicle damages through Property Damage coverage. You are responsible to pay for your collision deductible for at-fault accidents before a claims payout will be made.

The greater fault lies with the person backing out of the parking space. You may still be partially at fault for not driving with due care.

The way you are describing it B is at fault. If B is at fault and has no insurance, A's uninsured motorist coverage will take over as if the person had coverage. Any amount paid out will be retrievable by the insurance company through suit or other means. You subrogate your loss to your insurance company so that they can go after the other party for damages paid.

They look at your driving record, which is available through law enforcement channels. And Insurance companies actually share with each other as well.

Unless the person that hit you is found, you are responsible for the damages (just like if someone threw a brick through the window of your house). Always insure your car. If you are not going to drive it, buy garage insurance

Yes, most likely, your premium will raise to some degree. If you don't claim it through insurance, there would be no premium hike. Parking lot incidents are almost ALWAYS considered 50/50 fault, sad to say, unless you can PROVE otherwise!
