    Default Parallel Parking Accident

    My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: NJ

    I was parallel parking on a street with one lane in each direction. As I was pulling into the spot, a delivery truck traveling the same direction drove by and clipped my front bumper. The officer did not issue a ticket to either of us, who is at fault?

    The front of my car was roughly 2 ft off of the car I was parallel parking and the truck appeared to be passing at ~15 mph.

    How could he hit your front bumper? That suggests you were in the process of backing up but you have to realize that when you do that, the front of your vehicle swings towards the center of the road. With the info you provided, I cannot determine if they hit you or you hit them..

    Better seek legal advice to a solicitor. That kind of accident is really rare, neither one of you got injured. So its just a matter of whether the truck driver insurance company will pay you or not.

    We don't have solicitors in NJ (well we do, but they won't help you with legal matters).
