I was in the lane of a small parking lot today, and was back up to enter a parking space that was about to release ahead of me. I was checking my left rear in the mirror to make sure someone was not driving behind me, when he collided with a car that was supported by a parking space near the right rear of my car. I did not see , and I guess he did not see me because he had supported enough for us to crash. He says he saw me, it is automatically assumed it was my fault , I said that I would get an estimate and send me a bill . There were no witnesses that I could find and we do not call the police. I filed a report with my insurance company , and is obviously work to do your own research , but I have curiosity about whether anyone has any advance knowledge of this type of situation.

1) I should have called the police ... keep records filed with the local police with the investigation will help for sure!
2) I hope you have a low deductible , because insurance companies rarely recover the money to cover your deductible
3) no matter what ... this will probably appear on your next renewal of your insurance and expect a premium increase !

if you move first and then the mites to be guilty . if I saw why she did not cry or get out of the way! maybe your car was already sounded and he thought it would be a good way to get it fixed for nothing?

You could say that both are at fault and that each would pay his own bill .

Who found who? probably be 50/50 , no witnesses (he said she said ). The location of the fault / amount could be a consideration. From what I read here it sounds like you are " at fault " though.

When there are no witnesses and that someone is threatening , the police . It can at least make a report. I'd say the odds are that you may find to be equally guilty. You really need to talk to a lawyer and then possibly file against him in small claims court . If there is against you first, file a counterclaim. Also, taking pictures ... NOW.
