    Hit by a car whilst reversing - advice? 2nd Jul 07 at 9:17 PM
    Hi there

    last week i was reversing out of my allocated car parking space when I was hit by my next door neighbours neice who was driving into the space next to mine.
    Her front bumper was slightly scratched where she hit me, whilst my passenger door has a slight scrape.
    As the lady insisted that we went through our insurance companies, I submitted a claim, even though I assumed it was probably a 'knock for knock' claim.
    I have now had a telephone call from her (rather nasty) insurance company asking me to admit liability on the phone, even though she hit me (she was overlapping into my space when this happened) - they say it is because I was reversing that its my fault.

    Is this right? Can anyone give me any advice on this?:confused:

    NB - my insurance company said they were going for a knock for knock as we were both moving.
