    As title, yesterday some guy just reversed out, I had to slam on the anchors skidded straight into the back if him (he's still reversing at this point) and pushed me into another car parked on the opposite side. I said a few stern words to him got his details and drive the car back home. Ill get some photos to see what you think later today. But both wings damaged and only front bumper damage is from the off side also the headlight where the impact happened.

    Hope it's sorted promptly.

    Unlucky. The other problem you'll face is that because your front end is damaged the insurers will 'assume' it's your fault. You'll need to be on your toes :ermm:

    Hopefully the fact that he carried on pushing you after he hit you, goes to show that he wasn't paying attention!

    I know, I was fuming, I'm hearing through a friend who works with the guys car I was pushed into, that the idiot and his friend are both writing statements on how I allways speed down his road.

    First off the road is hard to speed down with cars being parked everywhere having to weeve inbetween them,
    And secondly I never really drove down his street anyway as its a longer way round to get around than just driving straight out my own street

    unless hes a plod with a speed gun hes no chance hes not qualified to say your speeding.
    its a simple 1 he reversed into a road without looking you dont need to giveway to him unless hes on the road already
    i had something same ish a few years back took 18 month to sort out cos the retard kept saying it was my fault.
    i bet you have a really sore shoulder and neck tho.

    Isn't it in the highway code about not reversing onto a main road?

    Hope you get it sorted and it doesn't hurt your wallet too much, could have been much worse with injuries sustained and all that just before Xmas.
    Just a suggestion, drive down the road again and have a look to see if any of the local houses have CCTV, if so they may have captured it, or could at least show you driving down the road at a legal speed.

    Hindsight and all that ****, but a Blackvue is probably looking more tempting now.

    Bez what happened in regards to your no claims etc during that period, as you would of had to renew at least once in that time period.

    Should be a fairly straight forward result. Anyone reversing out of a side road onto a main road is immediately at fault.

    As has been said, you cant reverse onto a main road. Your insurance company should be aware of this and not settle for anything less than 100% fault from the other party.

    yep, but if you stay with the same ins co it's usually ok, if you try to change with a claim in progress many other companys will add £££ or just not quote at all

    I thought it was illegal for someone to reverse into a main road due to exactly what has happened here. Your insurance company should see this.

    not from a driveway unless its stated in the house paperwork


    [h=2]201[/h] Do not reverse from a side road into a main road. When using a driveway, reverse in and drive out if you can.

    But it's common sense to reverse in and drive out, which is basically what that tells you. It winds me up that so many people do this, and the guy still reverses out his drive so hasn't learnt!
