Best Answer

If your car was already in the street when the other driver backed into you, it sounds like it's more his fault then yours. Unless there's serious damage to your car, the best thing would probably be to treat it as a shared-fault accident. Each driver pay for their own damage. No sense creating animosity with a neighbor over a mistake.

You got hit in a 4 way lane backing out of your driveway while landing in the opposite 4th lane when a car backed out of the facing street and hit your right rear?

If I understand the question you were both backing at the same time into traffic? If that is the case, likely be deemed 50/50, or if one person had ''possession of the lane'' then the other party would carry most if not all of the negliegence/liablility This is similar to what happened to my car, but in my case, my car was still not quite out of the driveway when the other car hit my left tail light area with her rear bumper, so basically she backed out perpendicularly to the street, crossing 3 lanes. And this a 4-lane street with double yellow line.
