    Answered . It sounds like your daughter had the right-of-way if the man pulled out in front of her from a parking lot. I suggest that you get a personal injury attorney immediately.

    Answered . Your daughter has the right-of-way. The man violated her right-of-way by entering the road your daughter was on when it was not safe to do so. Of course my opinion could change if you have more specific facts. If your daughter has sustained damages & injuries she should contact a lawyer specializing in personal injury cases for a free consultation.

    Answered . There is no way to determine fault from a posting. It is possible that he is at fault for failing to yield, and it is possible that it is her fault for rear ending him, or both could be at fault. Bottom line is report this to the insurance company to resolve, as that's why we all have insurance.
