Q: If you hit a car left unattended in the left lane on a interstate and get rear end teice who is at fault
A: The person who left the car has some likely fault but, your level of fault is also going to be part of any potential case, but that’s standard in any accident case because the law is comparative fault.
We need more facts as to whyWine and what led you to strike this car in the first place and whether it could’ve been avoided and when you say left in the left lane if it was in the lane of traffic and not pulled over on the side of the road, how long it was there etc. Definitely consult a lawyer as soon as possible
