My immediate answer would be that they cannot. They committed no crime. If there was some way in which it could be shown that they caused the accident, and I'm not sure I can figure out a way that would happen without a lot of thinking, then they could be sued.
Yes. you are responsible for damage to private property. the owner does not have to have a reflector on the chain. its his and he owns it. ok. what you can do is go to the owner accept responsibility for the damage you caused and offer to replace or pay for it.
doesn't matter if an accident was on private property. get a police report immediately. this will be used to determine fault, if any.
It depends, so here are some scenerios: If there are several cars parked in a private driveway and you back-up or start speeding out of the driveway and hit another car then you are responsible for hitting the other car. If you were speeding on a road and turned a curve and ended up on someone's property you are responsible for the damage done on their property and that includes ripping up gardens, grass, crashing into any part of that home or uprooting trees. If you were on private property and someone else hit you causing you to damage that property then it would be the other person that is responsible.
probably not. if vehicle is illegally there,then they dont have your permission to be there. you are not responsible for the care of the vehicle nor for damage that occurrs. Usually, yes. As a general rule, a stationary object cannot be "at fault" in a motor vehicle collision.
"Who is at fault when someone is backing out of a driveway on private property and you are pulling into the driveway and you get hit?" "Who is at fault when someone is backing out of a driveway on private property and you are pulling into the driveway and you get hit?"
Yes, private property does not obsolve you of your responsiblity.
Well I think you would for one it's a hit and runa and for second it's on private property
It's just like any other property-damage accident only the sign belongs to the state and is not private property. You must report the accident and exchange the same information you would if you hit a private vehicle or private property.
You are still at fault, no matter what.
If there door was already open then you are liable for the damage. It does not matter if it is on private property.
it might be considered as a hit and run or destroying private properity.
You hit a parked vehicle. No matter how or where it was parked, you are responsible for the damages. If you hit the car, you could have seen the car if you had been looking. You have no insurance which is a violation of the law. Pay the owner of the car you hit and accept responsibility for your poor driving, and stop trying to blame this on how the vehicle you hit was parked. It is your fault plain and simple.
I backed up into a car on private proprty, i know the people i hit, it is my girlfriends grandparents, i panced and just left, i was told police cant do anything since it was on private proporty. is this true for the state of Missouri?
The driver that hit the parked vehicle would be at fault.
None, private or not, fact is you hit the home and are responsible for any damages incurred to the motorhome, you were negligent in the operation of your motor vehicle. What would you "honestly say if it were your Motor home? Hmm~
any vehicle leaving private property and entering a public road ,is at fault. all vehicles leaving private property MUST yield to vehicles on a public road
No, that's what car insurance is for. If someone hit your car, that person is the one liable for your damages, not the property owner where it was parked.
Yes, if it was due to negligence on the part of the person driving the vehicle.
If you or the other driver makes a claim yes.
Assuming the stolen car was insured, the stolen cars insurance would be responsible. If the stolen car was not insured, the driver, if located would be responsible. If not located then the owner would probably be held responsible. Hopefully the struck vehicle is insured for "uninsured motorist" coverage. Filing the report after the accident would document the theft, but not neccesarily clear the owner of responsibility.
It should unless there was some illegal activity that had occurred and you had the proper coverages. There is no difference in a private property accident or a public street accident when it comes to paying claims.
Most cities have leash laws where dogs aren't allowed to run around. If your city has leash laws and the dog runs in the road and gets hit by a car the owner of the dog is responsible for the vet bill and for the damage done to the car.
The owner of the car that hit the other vehicle is responsible. If you allow a minor (even for a few minutes) to drive your car then you are responsible for any accidents that minor may have. The minor can also be charged for driving without a valid driver's license.
You form your statement into a more direct question so that someone might answer it.
