My question involves a traffic accident in the State of: California
Yesterday I was on a 2-lane road. One lane of traffic headed west, one east. I was traveling eastbound and stopped to parallel park. While pulling back at an angle into the parking spot, a car pulled up next to me while my left front bumper was sticking out. My bumper struck the side of his car. Since there was a single lane of traffic in my direction, shouldn't this guy have waited until I was out of the road instead of pulling up next to me? Who is at fault here? Thanks for any advice offered.
