Whose fault is it when you are switching lanes and you have room and the other driver admits to speeding up to not let you over and you hit him?

It's the fault of the other driver. If the police were not present there isn't much either of you can do. If it was a fairly serious accident and damage done to the vehicles, police were at the scene they would know whose fault it was. Usually damage down the side of the car or a rear-ender is a good sign you weren't at fault and the other driver was.

It's not your fault. It was the person who was speeding.ANOTHER VIEW: Sorry, but it is your fault. The person pulling into traffic is responsible for doing so cautiously and safely. Your contention that the other car was speeding is going to be difficult or impossible to prove, and you should be an experienced enough driver to be able to gauge the speed of oncoming traffic.

More info-- one driver was speeding down a residential street late for work and hit a parked car's slightly open door and ripped it off. The parked car driver had a license and coverage but it was a new lease and had not yet added the new car to the policy. The in-motion driver had current coverage but no drivers license. Both claim the other is at fault. Who is more screwed?

The actual driver. Unfortunately, if the driver is your kid, and you're adding your kid to your insurance policy, it could affect your rates.

You would only have right of recovery for property that belongs to you and that was damaged by the driver. The owner of the house would have rights of recovery for damages to their house from the driver.

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.

The driver that hit you. Not knowing all the circumstances, the unlicensed driver would be at fault in the driving aspect, and in the fact that he/she should not have been on the road at all. Just a personal opinion

In any situation in which a vehicle backing out of a property hits another vehicle, the driver who was backing up is always at fault, barring speeding, impairment, or disregarded traffic controls/signs on the part of the driver who was on the road. Added: I concur. The vehicle operating in reverse must always yield to any other vehicle. The charge I am familiar with is "Backing Without Caution."

Both Mensa and the Triple Nine Society are social organizations for people with high IQs. Mensa admits people whose IQ is at or above the 98th percentile. The Triple Nine Society admits those whose IQ is at or above the 99.9th percentile. Therefore, the Triple Nine Society would be the more prestigious of the two, while Mensa is the larger of the two. The IQ of 178 would be in about the middle of Mensa's range, while it would be at the lower end of the Triple Nine Society's.

Your insurance will have to pay regardless if the other person has insurance or not. You were at fault.

The coverage of the car who hit the house of course, as long as the driver had permission to drive the vehicle.

The fact that the car was illegally parked doesn't matter. The driver of the moving car was responsible to adjust their driving to the road conditions, and to ensure it was safe to proceed. This accident will be the fault of the uninsured driver.

When a speeding citation is given, it is given to the driver... not the owner of the vehicle nor the person (or company) who is insuring the vehicle. Therefore, the driver's insurance and driving record will reflect the charge. If this person was driving a company vehicle (and therefore insurance paid by the company) then the companies insurance policy COULD be affected but not always. The cost of corporate insurance policies that cover multiple vehicle and/or drivers are determined by many factors such as # of vehicles, types of vehicles, company claim history, # of drivers and ages there of. Most companies must report their drivers information to the insurance company which will then check the drivers records which will then allow the insurance company to 'rate that driver' and asses a cost for insuring that driver. Some companies will refuse employ drivers with too many moving violations... or not let them drive company vehicles. I hope the answered your question.

The person who rented the car is responsible because they allowed the unauthorized driver to drive the car. Hertz would not be at all responsible.
