In Chicago, Illinois:
A taxi was stopped in the left traffic lane of a one-way street. Passenger opened the right rear door as my car passed, damaging my car door and fender and taxi's door. Can the taxi driver be held liable for the accident, or only the passenger? Passenger gave a phony name. If the taxi driver (or owner) is liable, what is the applicable Chicago or Illinois law or vehicle code?
Any help appreciated.
