I backed out of parking lot space extremely slowly because my view was obstructed. I was going less than 5MPH (which I believe is the parking lot's speed limit). I think the driver was over the speed limit. My wheels were already turned, so the right corner of his front bumper hit the left side of my back bumper. Even so, I can accept that blame. But since I was under 5MPH, am I responsible for any injury he sustained if he was over the speed limit and not wearing his seat belt?
My foot was still on the brake while I inched out. The driver got out of the car, said he would call the police and then pulled the car to the side of the road. However, AFTER the driver realized there was no ID in his glove box, he started holding his head and told mall security that he needed to go to the ER.
