You know the answer: you hit a parked car! You're absolutely liable.
On one hand, you should have been looking while backing out so it would be your fault. He may get a citation for parking there, but you could have avoided an accident by looking first. You will be lucky if you are not cited for reckless and dangerous driving.
(In some states, contributory negligence on the part of the parked car's owner could reduce your liability, but you would still be At Fault. Your best option is to report vehicles that are illegally parked and avoid any possible accidents.)
The person backing out of the driveway.
The backing car is at fault
The person pulling out of the driveway is at fault.
if you're reversing into your driveway and someone hits you its their fault. you were moving away and they wern't paying attention. Now if you went back into the street to straighten out and back back in then it might be your fault, but if you were reversing the whole way and never came back out of your driveway it would be theirs
the car reversing oput of the driveway is at fault.
What type of driveway? Was it a curving and could not see the car before rounding the curve? Is it straight; then why did you not see the car blocking the driveway before even getting into car and/or backing..
If you reverse your car and then collide with a parked car , the person who did the reversing is at fault.
The car that is moving is normally the one at fault. No matter how someone is positioned you should not drive into them (going forward or in reverse). It therefore seems to me that the car backing out of the driveway is at fault.
The car that was in the hidden driveway.
I'm from Michigan, so it is no one's fault HEHEHEHEHEHEHEHEH.
if some man blocks you in your driveway and starts shooting gun at you , you back intothere your car to get away is there insurance responsible
Pedestrians have the right of way. Unless you can prove he/she was grosely negligent or did it on purpose then you are at fault. If you are backing down on your private driveway and a neighbor who walks behind your car on your private driveway is hit and falls down who is at fault? The neighbor pedestrian has been drinking, unstable on his feet was standing in his driveway at his car then suddenly is behind my vehicle.
It depends. Which bumper is still in your driveway, your front or rear? Did the other car leave the roadway and hit your car? After you came to a full stop did you then proceed to back out and then got hit? If any part of your car was in the roadway then it would most probably be your fault. Any vehicle that is entering into traffic from a driveway is required to yield the right of way to those vehicles traveling within the roadway. If you stuck 2 inches of your car into the road and you were hit, it would be your fault.
If you were fully in the lane, and he is backing from private property onto public property more than likely he will bare the majority of fault/liablilty.
The rear car would be at fault for not making a safe pass.
Both are equally at fault and you may both have to use your own insurance to pay the damage. If a police report was filed, then the police will determine the % of fault to each person. CORRECTION - Your INSURANCE COMPANY will determine the fault - not the police. Yes, it may be a 50/50 situation, unless one party admits 100% fault.
If he pulled out in front of a car driving on the street and it struck his car, then he is at fault. If he was rear-ended by the car following, then the following driver is at fault.
The car in motion is ALWAYS at fault when it hits a stationary vehicle.
Car 1 is at fault - the driver should have checked that the road was clear before backing back and should have continued to check that the way was clear while reversing. Definitly car 1
Contact your local police department and ask if you can tow the car away.
If the child was following the rules of the road the striking vehicle is at fault.
It is the person who is blocking the private driveway's fault because they should have known not to park in front of a private driveway in the first place. However, if the private driveway is not marked with a sign of some sort to let people know that it is private, it may be the driveway owner's fault.
It would be the person who backed out at first and bumped into the cars. The person is either having problems looking behind him or is impatient. When it comes to this if you see the car before you back into it stop, get out, and go to the neighbors house and ask them if they would move their car.
If a vehicle is pulling into roadway from driveway, the vehicle pulling out is at fault.
