no, I was pulling out and most of the way out, I have no tickets he has past speeding tickets the MP on base wanted to give me a ticket, but did not.

I see. Thank you for clarifying the situation, Deborah.

It does sound as though the other driver was at fault, but they may attempt to apportion some fault to you as well. If you have reason to believe that may occur, then it would typically be best to retain an attorney before communicating with the insurer to best protect your legal rights.

Since the accident occurred in a parking lot, it will normally come down to whether either driver was negligent in some manner, so you want to avoid admitting to anything that would indicate that you were negligent.

I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need so I will be compensated for my time from the deposit you posted with this website. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
