Who is at fault if a garage door is opening and car drives into it before it clears the path?

With garage door opening probably the fault of the driver. With a closing door driver could be not at fault if someone closed it on top of car. But opening should be seen by driver. Like running into a closed door that's not moving. Unless someone told the driver it was open and it wasn't and so the driver hit it backing out. Or it was open then someone else closed it and started to open it again.

In Wisconsin you are 10% at fault just for being there.As the answer above stated, it is your responsibility to look for oncoming cars before opening your door. The only situation in which there may be an exception to this is if you were in a parking lot and the other car pulled in beside you after you had already begun opening your door.
