A North Dakota attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. In general nationwide, the driver who hits a parked car is usually at fault.

Q: If I did not give consent for the police to search my vehicle but my passenger did is that legal
Lucas Wynne
Lucas Wynne answered on May 2, 2022

Here's the better question: is that the only basis the police had for the search? Even if it was an illegal search, illegality will not be found just because you want it to be found. Instead, you will need to compose, file, and argue a successful motion - which is difficult for any... Read more »

You likely need the squad car video to determine if there was an illegal search and seizure under the US Constitution. Even if there was, you cannot simply orally tell the judge about the issue - you have to make a motion, which is difficult to do if you're not an attorney.

I ddnt hv ins and i wsnt drunk but smelled like alcohol. Recklesd driving was my ticket

Lucas Wynne
Lucas Wynne answered on Feb 18, 2022

When I am helping clients fight trucking accidents, the first thing I ask is which party was liable. Being cited for reckless driving does NOT mean you will necessarily lose your case. The best way to determine if you have a claim is to call an attorney like myself who handles injury cases.

You should file a police report. If there is a criminal case filed against them or a juvenile case, it will likely come along with an order prohibiting contact. Otherwise, you'd need to go to the courthouse and request a restraining order.
