It's called, "Undue care and attention" and both of you are at fault. The person didn't look to see if there was a car coming, and you didn't look to see if someone was going to open up their door. This is a "Mexican Stand-off" and it's best to come to some conclusion over this with the other person if possible ... you each share half the cost of having your vehicle being repaired. Good luck Marcy
I beleive, whoever's car is moving (wheel-wise), is at fault.
The person driving the vehicles fault. Should have been paying attention and be alert for anything to happen at anytime.
The person that opens the door is at fault
The fault is at the person who opened the door. The person pulling in. They should of know you were coming out the car and waited then park.
Going ONLY by the information disclosed in the question - it would appear that the person who opend their door is at fault.
It can be called a 50/50 accident... ususally the adjuster can determine that.
need more info however if you were in the process of parralel parking , had pulled up to the car whose door opened into yours and the other driver opened the door while you were backing up then they are at fault and must pay you. If they were illegally parked (ie too far from curb- check local law on the distance -usually up to 18 inches from curb-, in a handicapped parking spot and they didnt have a handicapped permit etc) they have to pay you. Generally if you are pulling straight into a parking spot , if they whip their door open while you are pulling in it may be a 50/50 fault , check with your local police dept on local law. If all else fails get an atty . good luck e
Neither. Cause the moving vehicle driver should have been playing attention. On the other hand, the Parker car's driver should have watched for any incoming cars.
Dextral opens to the right, sinistral opens to the left.
The one backing out, because you should realize someone is opening a door.
The person who opens the door.
Well it depends. When the door opened, did it cross the line into the other parking space? If so, then the person who opened the door is at fault. If the door was open before they got into their car to back out, then they would be aware of it (therefor would wait until the door is closed before backing out). If they got into their car and then the person opens their door next to them, how can the driver be aware of that when they are focusing on the back of their car as they back out (most people turn around and look behind the car so they don't run a person over - not check for open doors).
Insurance companies or the police might find either driver at fault or both. It could be said that the person opening their door should have checked first. It could also be said that the person coming into the space was driving too fast or watched for people opening their door.
It the the persons fault who opened the door because they should be watching if a car comes. They should be more careful Most states have a law that blames the person who opened the door, it's just like pulling out into traffic. We have to look forst and yield right of way to on-coming vehicles.
someone opens a bottle of vinegar . the scent fills the kitchen .this an example of?
Virtually ANY time a vehicle door opens into moving traffic it will be the responsibility/fault of the party who was in control of the door. The questioner states that they were CLOSING the door??? That may be their story, but it will probably be difficult proving it.
Using the handle which opens the doors. Instead of pulling it as you do to open, you push it in until it clicks.
driver of parked vehicle
It opens by pulling the handle at left in the drivers foot space.

not sure what you mean by "someone opens their car door is hit", but usually, the person speeding is at fault. He IS speeding afterall, which is illegal in the first place..Disagree: It is the responsiblity of the person opening the car door to ascrtain if there is oncoming traffic and it is safe to do so. It may be YOUR contention that the oncoming car was speeding - how are you going to prove it?The possible result (from a law enforcement perspective) - the person whose door was struck could be ticketed and (if insured) the insurance companies will probably fight it out between themselves.
I don't think there is one, and if there was, it would vary from place to place so without knowing specifically where you are it's impossible to say. Illegal or not, it's stupid to let the snow in your parking lot pile up to the extent that it obscures the vision of drivers, because it opens you up for a lawsuit when they run into someone.
