If the lanes are clearly marked and you were driving ''forward'' then most if not all of the liability should be placed on them. Not enough details to help with a clear answer.
Usually their is no fault associated with parking lots. I'm sure your insurance company looks at it as your fault.
It would be the person driving fault because it is like the same thing as driving and hitting someone.
Yours. If it was stationary and you hit it then it was your fault.
most of the time the person already in the 'driving lane'' having possession of that lane, other drivers have to yield to that person...however if someone were speeding more than likely will be a comparative neglience assessed to someone as well........
The person backing out.
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 person driving in a forward direction has the right of way. If you are backing up, you must wait until traffic is clear before moving. Similar to a rear-ender, when the person hitting someone in front of them is always at fault.
The one in reverse is most probably at fault here!
Well if you were backing in and hit someone then it is your fault. But if they hit you, then it is their fault.
The person who cuts across parking spots, it's illegal. If the parking lot is private property the damage caused in an accident is a civil matter not a legal one in most cases. Traffic laws do not extend to private property.
I believe it could be both persons fault. If you're driving and someone decides to jump in front of your car it's not you fault. If you're driving and aren't being careful or just can't stop in time, than it's your fault. -Bobbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb
If my memory serves me correctly, it would be the fault of the driver who was in reverse if that driver struck the other car mostly on its broad side. After all, the driver who is pulling out of a parking lot has the right-of-way as opposed to someone in a parking spot. As far as an insurance claim goes the drivers would have to have insurance, and the driver who was struck would want to make sure they were driving within the bounds of the law (such as observing posted speed limits, stop signs, direction arrows,etc.).Hope this helps.
If they backed into you, it's their fault. Failure to yield.
Whoever the police report charges with the accident.
In most circumstances, the backing vehicle has the greater duty of care and would be found at fault.
If you are driving the backing car, no matter WHERE the other cas is located, YOU are the one at fault if you collide with it.
In general, the driver who is backing is considered to be at fault.
The driver of the parking car is at fault... he shd allways keep a man to inform him about danger, whenever backing in such a speedy street....
If he was driving forward past his intended parking space to take yours, then he is at fault. Cutting across is not permitted in parking lots although many people do it anyway.
You were driving in a parking lot and a shopping cart hit your car. Did someone push it out in front of you or did you hit it while it was just sitting there waiting for the parking lot attendant to come get it out of the hot sun. I would guess the driver of the car is a fault since a shopping cart is an inanimate object.
if the car b pulls in out of no where and with out the signal is car b fault
If you strike him - you are at fault. He can be charged with the No Parking violation but YOU are charged with the collision.
Situation dependent, but it really comes down to their insurance company vs. yours... the police won't issue a citation on private property.
Same thing happened to me in CA & we were found to both be at fault....
