Them, for causing it.




Legal issues

Many countries are aligned with the Vienna convention which states: «It shall be prohibited to open the door of a vehicle, to leave it open, or to alight from the vehicle without having made sure that to do so cannot endanger other road-users.» (Article 24 — Opening of doors).[1]

And if a passenger opens a door of a vehicle you're driving and someone hits it YOU'RE to blame.

As proven by the Leicester case when a cyclist was killed.

I can concur, them! I'm talking from experience because one of my passengers did the same a few years ago.

It also seems if someone walks into your car and is injured they can claim off you..
