Quick Facts: Legal position for parking damages in Germany

Parking damageWhen two cars collide while reversing, both drivers are responsible and the damage is shared between the two. This has been decided by the judges with their verdict on September 11, 2012. And the same applies even if one of the cars came to stand right before the collide. Therefore, when reversing it is of great importance to take particular care because in a case of damage the responsibility can be shared even if one of the drivers was not moving at that moment. __________________________ OLG Hamm, Verdict of 11th of September 2012
