Whose fault is it if a parked car opens his door and hits a passing car?

This type of claim can go either way. It could be said that the passenger should have looked before opening the door. It could also be said that the driver of the other vehicle did not have the right of way going around on the passenger's side. It is up to the insurance companies to decide. If you are getting resistance from the other driver to claim responsibility, you should make a claim with your insurance carrier and contact a car accident attorney immediately as the insurance carrier may not want to pay for the damages. Fisher & Associates in Colorado is proficient in these kinds of cases.

Who is to blame when a parked uninsured car being cleaned opens the door and is hit by a car that had stopped in the middle of road to let out passenger and sets off without warning?

If your the uninsured car was parked, and the door was already open when it was struck, then it would be the other drivers fault. If you are parked then you are classified as a permanent object, and you are treated just like all other permanent objects such as trees and signs. The other driver must have control of his vehicle at all times, and by hitting you while you were stationary and not moving, this was not the case, so he is at fault. Now if he was driving and you opened the door right as he was passing you, then the answer would not be as clear cut.
