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).
no matter where a vehicle is parked, the moving vehicle is at fault every time.
the person pulling out
Unless thare are other than normal circumstances, the driver of the parked vehicle would be at fault as it is his duty to ensure that it is safe to join the carriageway...
The car pulling from the parking space is at fault
Usually their is no fault associated with parking lots. I'm sure your insurance company looks at it as your fault.
If a vehicle is pulling into roadway from driveway, the vehicle pulling out is at fault.
If you hit another vehicle then you are at fault. It does not matter what you were doing at the time.
You are at fault.
if you hit a stationary object - you will most likely be found at fault
The vehicle exiting the parking space that did not yield to oncoming traffic.
It is your fault.
No, as if your vehicle collided with the other vehicle, the fault is yours.j3h.
A vehicle traveling in a parking lot has established use of the lane and the right of way. A vehicle in a parking space and backing into the lane must yield to oncoming traffic. Therefore, if a vehicle is backing out of a parking space and pulls into the path of an oncoming vehicle that has already established the lane, the vehicle backing would be at fault for the accident. However, if the vehicle which established use of the lane had an opportunity to avoid hitting the vehicle backing out of the space and failed to do so, there could be comparative negligence on both vehicles or on the one who had the opportunity to avoid the accident.
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 driver.Another View: It depends on the circumstances of the collision.If the door struck the side of the moving vehicle, then the person opening the door of the parked car is at fault.If the moving vehicle struck the open door of the parked car, then the moving car is at fault.
it is the person coming out of the parking space
It depends. If they hit you with their door, it's usually their fault. If you hit their door with your car, it's most likely your fault. That said, the burden of ensuring the way is clear is ALWAYS on the reversing vehicle.
I would have to say that technically it would be the driver pulling out of the parking space. TECHNICALLY speaking that is. The insurance companies would probably try to say it is an equal at fault accident maybe.
Depends on the situation. If you signaled in advance and had room to pull out without interrupting the flow of traffic then the other driver is at fault. However if you did not signal and attempted to pull out without being aware of on coming traffic you are at fault.
The backing vehicle is at fault. We are always supposed to look to ensure the path is clear before placing our vehicle in motion.
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.
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.
I beleive, whoever's car is moving (wheel-wise), is at fault.
The owner of the car that caused the damage. They have a duty to engage their parking break.
Yours. There is no way for the other car to anticipate you exciting your vehicle, but you could have checked if a car was pulling in before opening your door.Answercorrect. the party needs to yield Right of Way. They entered into your lane of travel,
