Yours. If it was stationary and you hit it then it was your fault.
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.
Usually their is no fault associated with parking lots. I'm sure your insurance company looks at it as your fault.
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.
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.
It would be the person driving fault because it is like the same thing as driving and hitting someone.
The one in reverse is most probably at fault here!
It depends if you pulled out without looking and/or too quickly so as to cut off the car on your right it's your fault. If you were moving very slow and they didnt see you and hit you its their fault. Although.. It is your responsibility as the car NOT in the driving lane to yield to the car IN the driving lane.
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 you were backing out of a space and you stopped and the forklift had a REASONABLE amount of time to see your vehicle (about 3 seconds or so), then the forklift operator would be at fault.
if the car b pulls in out of no where and with out the signal is car b 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.
If you strike him - you are at fault. He can be charged with the No Parking violation but YOU are charged with the collision.
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 driver backing up. Unless you can prove the other car was driving unsafly.
no one is at fault on private property such as a parking lot
The person backing out due to the other car having the right-of-way.
Were you backing and they driving forward in the lane? If so more than likely you will be deemed the higher degree of fault. Vehicle that are reversing are required to use a higher degree of care. More details and I might be of greater assistance to you.
In most cases parking lots are private property and are not subject to street laws. Therefore, no insurance company will assume liability.
Whomever caused the accident is generally considered the at fault party. It does not matter whether or not your in a parking lot.
The person backing out of the lot. Cars in the travel lane have right of way.
