I just had my first fender bender in 10yrs of driving. I'm not to sure how the insurance process works. I havew already made my claim. I have denied fault but if I'm found to be at fault what happens? Will I have any costs out of my pocket or does my insurance company cover everything. I opted not to use their repair shops. Will they send me a check to cover my cost. Rough last 4 weeks. Had my car stolen and told before xmas. Thanks

well as long as you didn't hit them from behind then you probably won't be at fault, as long as you have logical reasons and crap

I was pulling out of my parking spot. There was a woman to my right. There was a woman to my left perpendicular to me. As I pulled out of my spot I saw the woman to my right was pulling out at the same time. I was halfway out of the spot. We both stopped. She motioned me to go. As she waited I pulled out. The woman to my left tried to go around. That's when we hit. I guess she thought the woman to my right waived her to go. The woman was 81 and had a recent accident as well. She said there were so many cars she got confused. Anyways I denied fault since she was stopped when I mad my exit but with my luck who knows.

So it was like this? (mad skills yo!)


er i had something like that happen to me too (with one of my teachers!) i was the one driving down the parking lot and my teacher was where u were and he hit me on my right front door area...i thought it was my fault for goin 30+mph in a parking lot, but ended up him getting all the fault. Yours looks like a close call...if im right, the person driving through the lot has the right of way and the person parked has to yield... =/ good luck and hopefully everything goes well!
