just a queston to see whos fault it is.

i was parked outside a shop on the right hand side of the road and i was pulling out and i saw a car come 2wards me. i stopped. he braked slowley and hit the front right of my car caving it all in.

am i right in thinking that since i was stopped, not moving what ever that it isnt my fault.

He could have gone round me. coz tere wasnt anycars coming from the other direction?

Cheers chris

P.S ill post pics asap

were u indicating?
Did he have time to stop?

Is always best to call the police in an accident cos they can decide who was to blame and it speeds up the claims..

Were you more than a doors width into the road?
Your insurance company should argue that the highway code states to leave a doors width when passing parked cars!

At the end of the day you pulled out in front of the car. If you have witnesses saying the car should have had enough time to stop but didnt, both yours and theres insurance company will probably settle for knock for knock which means they pay theres and yours pays yours. Either way you lose you no claims unfortunately.
