Yes you are but the one that hit you might try to use it to share part of the claim.
The outcome of this could depend on whether your car was parked in an area that was blind to the other driver and that was why the lines were there in the first place - for example around a blind bend or over the crest of a hill. In these circumstances it could be argued that your poor parking contributed to the accident but you cannot get away from the fact that the other driver should have been prepared to stop or otherwise avoid in that situation.
