In Ontario parking lots are private property and do not fall under the highway traffic act. Given this Ontario also has whats called no-fault insurance, meaning if 2 people are in an accident in a parking lot, person 1's insurance covers person 1 and person 2's insurance covers person 2.
If there are evidence who can mention who was in fault while accident happens, then only you can decide on this. But if your car hit another parked car or vice-verse then you should be in fault. When I face same problem, my insurance company Chola MS favored me as my car was parked in parking lot and someone rushed into my car.
I beleive, whoever's car is moving (wheel-wise), is at fault.
It really depends on the circumstances, I would contact your claims department for more information.
This is not enough information to answer the question. If a car hits a parked vehicle then the moving vehicle would be at fault. If both vehicles are moving then the issue gets more complicating.
Whoever the police report charges with the accident.
If they backed into you, it's their fault. Failure to yield.
The person pulling out of the driveway is at fault.
The vehicle exiting the parking space that did not yield to oncoming traffic.
You are at fault. You are backing out of a space and you must yield the right of way to the other vehicles traveling in the aisle.
Not enough detail here to determine fault
The person who ran into you from behind of course because they should be stopping, or slowing down when you turn in the parking lot.
The backing vehicle is at fault. We are always supposed to look to ensure the path is clear before placing our vehicle in motion.
that person who hit you
In the above described incident - it is probably the striking ve3hicle that will be ruled at fault. Private parking lots are not public roadways and it will probably be the insurance company which assigns the blame for the collision.
The person backing out. If you were in the lane/road behind them they needed to use caution when backing out.
The guy that is walking.
hits your car or hits you?If you walked out into on-coming traffic then that's your fault. No one can read minds and anticiapte that you will be walking out in front of them.If someone hit your parked car, that's their faultAnswerIt is the guy who hit yous fault!
both because ur not quick enough ;) the other guy is thick cos he drove into you!! So more his fault!!
At least in PA, the person backing up is at fault, no matter how stupid the other driver is. My brother got burned backing up and hit someone speeding through the parking lot. to the best of my knowledge, all parking lot accidents are 50/50.
This depends on the state you are in and most times whether it is a private parking lot or not. florida is a no fault state so it you back out and hit someone or if someone hits you while backing out then you are both equally at fault and both insurances have to cover. most cops here dont even ask because in a private parking lot it doesnt matter both insurances cover anyways.
the car who bumped into you
Answering "Pulling out of a parking lot onto a street and you have to back up to avoid on coming car and the car behind you hits you who is at 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.
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.
If you're backing up, generally, you're the one at fault (regardless of how stupid the other driver is). However, some insurance companies may differ.
It would be your fault, because you don't have the right to pull out right away. The car on the street does have the right to keep going though. You are supposed to wait until there is a gap in traffic .
