    i'm the yellow box. i turned right to get into the parking lot.

    when i began to turn the car, i saw the blue car stop.

    as i was about to finish turning, the driver hit me.

    there were no stop signs.

    whose fault is it?

    oh and uhh...those blue boxes are parked cars.

    well, he was under no obligation to cede the right of way, however you say he did stop. Providing that is true, the diagram is accurate AND he hit you behind the front tire/fender it is his fault.

    Failure to yeild the right of way.

    Essentially, if he allowed you to pull out in front of him, meaning that you didn't hit him or he didn't hit your front bumper then it is his obligation to ease off the gas and apply some brake. Basically he just rear ended you, even though it was a side impact and the blame should fall accordingly.

    there fault.......lets say for example that you were coming from the opposite way and you were trying to leave the parking lot would you have stopped for that car......since the entrance and exits of most parking lots are the main roads.....and one thing i remember from Drivers Ed......is that little road always yields to big roads........

    dude stopped lending you the right of way...its his fault if he stopped. if he didnt then it's yours...and you better be able to prove that he actually came to a complete stop

    i say if you pulled infront of him quickly then it was your fault if he stopped and you started and he hit you it was his fault.
