"No fault" in MN means that your own insurance company will pay for your medical expenses and/or wage loss if you are injured in a motor vehicle accident. Even without a police report you can contact the other driver's insurance company and make a claim for your property damage, if you have any. If the person is uninsured you then contact your insurance company to settle the property damage.

Who is at fault when you are parking and someone backing out of their space hits you?

Whoever the police report charges with the accident.

If you are backing out of a parking spot and another person cuts in behind you to get into a parking space who is at fault if you back into them?

If you are both moving, the one at fault is whoever the police officer says is at fault on the accident report. That's all I can tell you with this information. I hope you called the police. They will say you backed into them and you will say they ran into you. Without a police report faulting one of you, the insurance company will say both are 50% at fault which means each pays for their own damage.

Who is liable if a driver of a borrowed car backs into another car in a parking lot and drivers of both cars have misplaced their license and no report was filed?

The driver of the borrowed car, if at fault, would be liable in this case. If no report is filed, either with the police, or their insurance company, most likely no one would be held liable.

Can an insurance company decide who is at fault when a police report has been filed?

An insurance company can assign fault regardless if a police report is filed or not. A police report is simply a report made by a neutral party at an accident scene. I believe there have been cases where insurance companies have assigned fault to one party when the opposing party was initially named at fault in a report.

Who is at fault if a car backs out of a spot into a car in the lane waiting for another parking spot?

the car backing out.

Who is at fault without a police report?

A police report does not define who is at fault. That requires some investigation by either the insurance company or the police themselves; however, unless you make a claim or a report, neither will investigate and the accident will not officially have happened.

Who is at fault when someone backs into you while driving in a private parking lot in wyoming?

Situation dependent, but it really comes down to their insurance company vs. yours... the police won't issue a citation on private property.

What should you do if you are not at fault but somehow the police accident report said that you were?

not final, you can contest the police�s report by hiring independent investigators. But, if the police say you were at fault you probably were according to the traffice rules and regulations.

You got in a wreck in the parking lot and did not get their insurance information or file a police report will insurance still pay for your damages?

That depends on the integrity of the at-fault driver and whether they'll admit to their insurance company or the court that they were at fault. Always get a police report. Often the other driver will apologize and admit fault at the time then start to feel pressure to not accept responsibility and deny when it gets time to step up. If a local police department says that they don't have jurisdiction in a private parking lot, contact the local sheriff or whatever it's called in your state.

On the police report is it the first vehicle listed the one that is at fault?

Believe it or not, police do not determine who is at fault the insurance companies involved do. They use information given to them from the police department, such as violations or speed information, but the police can not determine fault or liability. Order of listing vehicles on the report has no determination of anything

If you had an accident and it wasnt your fault does it go in your driving record?

If the police came out and made a report of it then it will be on your driving record. It will be a not-at-fault accident but it will still be on your driving record. If the police did not come out but your insurance knows about it then it will be on your CLUE report and be a not-at-fault accident.
