My car was parked outside a friends house on the street (in a neighborhood). One of the people living at this house backed out of the driveway and hit my back bumper with his car. He claims that my car was not completely clear of the driveway and therefore, he should not be responsible for paying to fix it because my car wasnt completely clear of his driveway. However, he pulled into the same driveway with my car in the same position the night before and then the next morning hit my car when he backed out so he knew that my car was there and he was perfectly able to get into his driveway.My car wasnt illegally parked. Am I partly to blame for him hitting my car because of where I parked or should he be solely responsible because he should have been looking where he was going?
