In most cases parking lots are private property and are not subject to street laws. Therefore, no insurance company will assume liability.

Do you reverse when leavingdowhill parking?

This is completely dependent on the space you parked in and the cars around you. OPTIONAL: If the hill is steep you will need to make sure that your car does not roll forward unintentionally by... 1. Applying pressure on the brake with your left foot if your car has an automatic transmission. 2. Applying brake pressure with the emergency brake if you car has a manual transmission. For parallel parking... 1. If there is a car in front of you but not behind you, reverse to a point where you can safely pull forward out of the parking spot without hitting the car in front of you, turn the wheels so they point into the street, and then pull forward out of the parking spot. 2. If there is a car behind you but not in front of you, pull forward out of the parking spot. 3. If there is a car both behind and in front of you, reverse as much as you can without hitting the car behind you, turn the wheels so they point into the street, and then pull forward making sure you have enough room not to hit the car in front of you. If you can not get around the car in front of you continue by turning the wheel of your car towards the curb, reversing as far as you safely can without hitting something, turning the wheel back towards the street, and then pulling forward to leave the parking space. Repeat as many times as is necessary. For standard or diagonal parking... 1. Pull out of the spot the only way that is not obstructed by a parking block, curb, or another vehicle.

Who is at fault in an accident where a vehicle is backing out of a parking spot and strikes a vehicle that is turning into the parking lot in Texas?

If my memory serves me correctly, it would be the fault of the driver who was in reverse if that driver struck the other car mostly on its broad side. After all, the driver who is pulling out of a parking lot has the right-of-way as opposed to someone in a parking spot. As far as an insurance claim goes the drivers would have to have insurance, and the driver who was struck would want to make sure they were driving within the bounds of the law (such as observing posted speed limits, stop signs, direction arrows,etc.).Hope this helps.
