Hello Ian,

Usually the vehicle backing has a greater duty. However, if they came 20 feet into your driveway, then chances are that you are not at fault.

If they change their story, then you would have to prove that they came into your drive way.

This can be almost impossible without a third party witness that can testify to this. Looks like there is no police report. So try to be on top of your adjuster to protect your interests at all cost.

They must advocate for you and must believe your side of the story. If there is a dispute, you will likely end up in arbitration.

Good Luck,
