The other day I was parking in front of my office as I always do. The road is a residential street, but it can get very busy around rush hour. It was 10 am, because I always wait for traffic before going in. As always, I stopped, checked the right, stopped, checked to make sure there was nobody around me and when I saw it was clear, I began to support my parking space. There are eight spaces and parks around the world supported it, because it is almost impossible to get out sometimes. Anyway, that's my last memory. When I was in a full angle and almost backed into my space, I was struck in the driver's side door and the front axle by a driver coming from behind. Forty feet left tire marks and caught my attention enough to get my unconscious and hospitalized me for the night. Judging from my experience with the parking in that space, so most days, the driver had to come from the bottom of the hill crests and provide a comprehensive view of the road about 10-15 seconds before my parking space. The speed limit is 35. It should have been ale to see what he was doing waaaaay before he fell to his brakes. I was well into my parking maneuver, so it was not right behind me when I started.

Of course, I was driving my new car 2012 with a very good insurance and was in a 99 Chevy Ruster with the minimum insurance. I thank God no insurance at all.

My insurance company said "looks good" for me, on the basis of the details in the police report. Your insurance adjuster however, called me and told me that the other does not have collision coverage and you want the mines to pay your car ... I'm sure is a total loss. He did 13k damage to mine and hers was worse and very old. I told the Salt pounds, he was beaten by the insured crazy. Your adjuster asked me to take 50% of the blame (fit, not mine). Said backup in a parking space is illegal. He said he was parking wrecklessly. I explained that the two people I work with both the unity of the Cadillac brand new and I park between them every day. If I was a wreckless Parker, would have my ass on a plate. He said I have to take half the blame. I said good luck with that, and hung up.

I know he is trying to reduce your company's liability for my harm and injury, but still want to know if it is illegal to back into a parking space on the road, provided they do not impede traffic and make all as possible within reason to avoid causing a
problem.

My question is, can I break a law support in my space? We all do every day, so you need to know if we are breaking the law and take responsibility. I have always believed that it is safer than a backup in a space.
