    Default Hit in Rear While Parallel Parking

    My question involves a traffic accident in the State of: Louisiana
    While backing into a spot on a two way poorly lit city street, my friend hit another car. he was driving a truck, she a sedan. He claims to have been reversing slowly, had blinker on and of course reverse lights functioning. Says that he did not see her. She was either too close/ and or accelerated into his car while parking. Her hood has damage from the trailer hitch. She has witnesses he does not. How does the insurance company determine if someone was set-up. It does not look too good for him? what about following too close laws ?

    Following too close does not address people running backwards. It would appear that he was backing into either something that was blind to him or that he was not observing that his negligence was responsible for the crash. I don't know how you leap to it being insurance fraud. Let your insurer handle it.

    Sounds like her hit someone who was in the process of parking. How do you know what happened? He didn't see the other vehicle, you were not there, etc.

    The idea that its a scam is a remarkable statement given the lack of injuries other than vehicle damage.
