Advice on accident on Private Shopping Mall Property
My parents got into a fender bender yesterday at local shopping mall. A young driver hit the side of my parents car as she was making a right turn onto the main road from her parking spot. Security came and basically said that since it happend on shopping mall property, or otherwise known as Private Property, my parents are 50% to blame and 50% of the other drivers fault. It's clearly NOT my parents fault as both parties determined. But I find it unfair how since it was caused under "Private Property" it's now 50% of my parents fault? How unfair is that? I just wanted to get the opinion of any fellow RFD'ers here who experienced a similar incident?
If so, is there any protection from this 50/50 accident ruling? any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much.
