Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Thank you for the information and your question. Although only the insurance companies can determine fault after interviewing both parties and examining the damages to both vehicles, it does sound, from the limited information I have, that the other driver would be at fault. That assumes that your door was already open in the position it was hit when she pulled into the spot. The other driver had the duty of care to make sure the parking spot was clear before she pulled in. Again, this is based on what you have shared.
It appears that you might have already made an insurance claim, which is the right thing to do, and they will determine liability. Please feel free to ask for clarification if needed. If none is needed, then if you could take a moment to leave a positive rating in the box above, I will receive credit for assisting you today. Thank you
