What if a car parks in a non-parking place right behind your vehicle and you do not see them, are you responsible for damage resulting from your backing into them?
sort by best latest
was this a private parking lot? It is hard to believe it would not have been a 50/50 accident. I would be angry with my insurance company!!!
I guess I tend to agree. My husband argues that because my car was slightly headed downhill, my line of sight was up and over the top of the car that was parked where it should not have been. The parking lot we were in is a school parking lot....
You especially pay if you hit and run.....
It doesn't have anything to do with the law, it all has to do with the insurance claim. Even though the ov was illegally parked the iv is at fault for improper backing
Is that based on opinion, or law? I ask, because that's the opposite of the law in most places (I can't think of anywhere it isn't, but I'm assuming there's a place). Where did you get your info?
Interesting question. I agree with Tech Trendy that it probably depends upon the state. In Florida, it is a no-fault state and many minor accidents are treated as such.
I really don't mind paying for the damage I did to my car, but concerned about the damage to him. I guess I agree with the comment below that the operator of the car is liable (unfortunately), but I am still quite annoyed at the whole situation!
