If the car that was on the street was stationary (no moving) then it's the fault of the driver pulling out of the driveway. The rule of thumb is that if both cars were in motion, the drivers *may have been able to avoid an accident - therefore it's called "contributary negligence" In this case, although the details are vague, it seems like it's the fault of the driver pulling out of the driveway because it is their responsibility to enter the road under safe conditions and not disturb the flow of traffic. Good luck. ANC, esq

Who is at fault when someone is backing out of a driveway and hits a car semi blocking that driveway?

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.

if you're reversing into your driveway and someone hits you its their fault. you were moving away and they wern't paying attention.

Who is at fault if you pull out and are hit by a speeding driver that then hits 2 parked cars?

You are if you were pulling out of a driveway or alleyway. If you were at a side road it would depend on who had the right of way. If you had to stop but he didn't, you're at fault. If he had to stop but you didn't or if he ran a stop, then its his fault. The fact that he then hit two other cars is immaterial.

If backing out of your driveway you come to a full stop at the end of it because you see another car coming and the other car hits you while your bumper is still on your own driveway who ist at fault.?

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.

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.
