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.

Usually their is no fault associated with parking lots. I'm sure your insurance company looks at it as your fault.


It would be the person driving fault because it is like the same thing as driving and hitting someone.


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.


Yours. If it was stationary and you hit it then it was 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.



most of the time the person already in the 'driving lane'' having possession of that lane, other drivers have to yield to that person...however if someone were speeding more than likely will be a comparative neglience assessed to someone as well........


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.




Well if you were backing in and hit someone then it is your fault. But if they hit you, then it is their fault.


I believe it could be both persons fault. If you're driving and someone decides to jump in front of your car it's not you fault. If you're driving and aren't being careful or just can't stop in time, than it's your fault. -Bobbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb




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.



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....


You were driving in a parking lot and a shopping cart hit your car. Did someone push it out in front of you or did you hit it while it was just sitting there waiting for the parking lot attendant to come get it out of the hot sun. I would guess the driver of the car is a fault since a shopping cart is an inanimate object.



If you strike him - you are at fault. He can be charged with the No Parking violation but YOU are charged with the collision.


Situation dependent, but it really comes down to their insurance company vs. yours... the police won't issue a citation on private property.


Same thing happened to me in CA & we were found to both be at fault....


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.


If you were legally parked, the person backing up is at fault. If you were in a "No Parking" area, you are at fault.
