Recently, my mother-in-law was in a fender bender in a parking lot (in California). She was backing out of her parking space, was more than halfway out, and was about to shift into "Drive" when another car came from a different aisle (perpendicular to the one she was parked on), turned onto her aisle and immediately clipped my MIL's rear driver's side bumper. The other driver scraped almost the whole length of her passenger side on my MIL's bumper (she admitted to being agitated by another driver just before hitting my MIL's car and appeared to be going faster than the posted 10mph speed limit -- although the insurance company said that there's no way to prove that). The insurance company found my MIL 100% responsible because she was the one backing out -- even though the other driver was on a different aisle and had just changed directions when she hit her. They cited Statute 22106, but I called the Highway Patrol and found out that this statute doesn't even apply to parking lots. Does anyone know of any laws or information that may be helpful to my mother-in-law? Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated! Thank you kindly!
