    Question Parking Lot Accident Fault

    I live in Massachusetts, the accident occurred in New Hampshire.

    I was in a parking lot, reversing into a space 2-3 spaces from the end of an aisle. As I was reversing in, a car took a left into the aisle I was in, in order to park in a space opposite the row I was pulling into. Our cars lightly bumped. There was no damage to my vehicle, but the front left light of theirs was cracked.

    No police were called, but we exhanged info and our insurance companies are handling it. But I was wondering how fault would be determined here? As they had an obligation before turning into the aisle to make sure it was clear, and I had an obligation as I was reversing to make sure my pathway stayed clear, I'm assuming it could be fifty-fifty, but I'm not sure.

    Any info/advice is appreciated. Thank you.

    It could be 50:50, but that's about as favorable as I would expect the ratio to be to you. How far out of the space were you when the other car entered the lane?
