Who's at-fault here?

I was entering a restaurant parking lot when a car that was parked on the right suddenly pulls out and hits the front right side of my car with the middle of her bumper. She hit me so hard it jolted my car and hurt my back.

Called the police but he refused to take a report saying he couldn't since it's private property. Is this true? And when the lady handed me her insurance card it was expired and for a different vehicle but again the cop said it wasn't a big deal which seemed weird to me cause I know people who got ticketed for that. Cop seemed buddy buddy with her and even tried to blame me!!!!

    That figures. Report the accident anyway to your state DMV and tell them she had no insurance. That should get her license suspended

    This is why I have cameras all over my car - and a good lawyer - who would take that person who hit you for every dime she has.

    The law enforcement officer was correct, they do not write accident reports which occur on private properly.

    Secondly, even if you were on public property law enforcement officials do not determine fault of motor vehicle accidents. Only insurance providers do. Submit your claim to your insurance provider and wait to find out their determination.

    No idea who is at fault. Once your insurance is done with their investigation they will tell you. And yes, police don't need to do private property reports.

  • On private property, it's every man for himself. The rules of the road don't apply and the police can only get involved if a felony is committed. If you sue her, you would need to prove recklessness.

    The cop was at fault. I hope you got all the information needed to let your insurance company handle the problem.
