Your input needed! Accident dispute (short and simple)
    #7357095 - 08/31/07 09:50 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I live with two other roomates in a house. The house has one driveway with a garage, I drive an SUV the only car that will make it up the STEEP driveway, so I park there. My other roomate parked his car half-way out into it, blocking 1/2 of my way out. The driveway is tall then goes down sharply, and my jeep is tall, prevented seeing very well at streetlevel when backing out.

So I pull out and before I can stop I hit the back side of the car. It scratched up my bumper (possibly more damage underneath), and his car recieved a sizeable dent and broke a tailight out. It is illegal to park in front of driveways in our town. He says this is my fault, he had to park there or park way up the street. I have NEVER had anyone else interfere with me backing out except him. He has blocked the driveway at least 6-7 times. Most times I can manuvere around, but not this time.

EDIT: I also wanted to add I have driving for just under 7 years and have NEVER had an accident, never even touched another car with mine. I'm not some shitty ass driver.

Whos fault is this? 1 is me 2 is him.
Who's fault is this accident?
You may choose only one
Me (driver)
Roomate (blocked driveway)

This is really a no-brainer.

Your roommate is at fault for lousy parking, but what you did was back up into a parked vehicle. This makes it clearly your fault, you did the only driving that led to the accident. Your SUV rammed his car because your oversight in driving.

Be glad it wasnt a kid standing there and shell out the bucks :smile:

you're both to blame.... is that not an option?

Tell him you'll pay to fix his car if he'll pay to fix yours. Simple.

did you not see his car before you got into your jeep?

Its going to be hard to explain to someone how you hit a parked car thats all im saying.

but its going to be hard for him to explain parking illegally.

overall i would get both cars fixed, and then split the cost.

then make him park way up the street all the time every time in the future.

you should have talked about it when he moved in. he is allowed to park there if you didn't talk about it. you should have gotten him to move his car, and he should acknowledge that if he blocks your car, he has to move it when you need to drive your car.

that being said, its your fault.

You had one accident - this one. It's your mess, take responsibility. If your roommate agrees to some kind of split in cost thats fine, but the bottom line is its your driving that did it.

Again: be glad it wasn't a kid.

The reason it is such a problem is that my roomate is freaking out and says"none of this is my fault" and bringing all sorts of different shit into the debate totally unrelated, it's like how some 14 girl argues, like a little bitch. I would glady pay for it but he is sooooo sure that he has NO fault. And is telling anyone and everyone his twisted one-sided story and dragging my name through the dirt for no reason. Fuck all that. We are both at fault. This probably the 10th time the dumbass did this. And unfortunatly I didn't look at the street before I left. You CANNOT see cars parked there when you pull out. You can see further into the street to see passing cars etc. But the way it was set up was such a blind spot, not to mention a tree the hinders seeing it at all walking to the garage. This certainly not ALL my fault. He also knew I was leaving and should have went and moved it in the first place.

you didnt see his car and hit it,that makes it your fault because you were reversing.

what would probably happen if you went legal is your pal will get a ticket for blocking a driveway and you will get one for negligent driving and you'll hate each other

its your fault and you know it man
