Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.My apologies to you on your situation. However based on your facts I am sorry but I am not able to see how the individual is responsible. Even if he blocked you in, which I agree is not favorable and not proper, the choice to drive your vehicle out of the spot was still yours. As his vehicle was stationary, the fact that you struck his vehicle is your responsibility since you took upon yourself the risk to attempt the maneuvers. As a consequence the landlord is not liable for the damage. If the other neighbor blocked you in, then you had other options, if possible, to get to work, if your car was blocked. but moving the car made you liable and not the landlord.I am genuinely sorry.Please take care.
