So he doesn't have to take partial blame for parking illegal? So I am taking it we are responsible for payment in full of the minor dent and small scratch which would not have happened had he not be parked illegally. I don't understand how it leaves him out of the mix because my son was riding a bike on the sidewalk. So if we told him to sue us he would win in this case? Great... these same neighbors dog bit a dog I was watching while it was on a leash in my driveway right next to me. Their dog got loose and came onto my property. Yet they never paid. They also dented our car when their kids were younger but we made not claim against them. I just don't understand how we are solely responsible for this act.
