No.This is where your insurance would kick in - if they proceed under the Uninsured Mototists clause of your policy. If you do not have that then you would need to pay your deductible to have the repairs made, with the balance going to your insurance company. Can you imagine if the shopping center was held responsible for every accident that occured on their premises. The same would hold true if someone damaged a guest's car while it was in your driveway.
