If you were legally parked, the person backing up is At Fault. If you were in a "No Parking" area, you are at fault.

Who is at fault if a driver backs into a parked car that is parked past a no parking sign?

Some people incorrectly believe: "It is the parked car driver that is at fault because the car was parked past the sign." However, a parked car does not have the ability to see and avoid other cars; the drivers of the other cars are responsible for trying to avoid hitting any object that may be standing in the way, regardless of how it got there or whether it happens to be there legally. Could I legally crash into a parked car simply because it's time ran out on the parking meter? Parking laws rarely have anything to do with liability to other drivers who crash into each other. On the other hand, if the illegally parked car was violating a view to a intersection approach, and two OTHER cars collide "because of it", then the parking law COULD apply and may serve to apportion fault to the driver of the parked car who created the specific hazard against which the sign was posted, but most of the blame is on the other drivers who failed to exercise caution while driving. It still doesn't give someone the roght to drive into it.

If an uninsured driver backs into a parked car that was backed in making it less visible to the driver on private property and the driver nor it's passengers could see the car what happens?

You hit a parked vehicle. No matter how or where it was parked, you are responsible for the damages. If you hit the car, you could have seen the car if you had been looking. You have no insurance which is a violation of the law. Pay the owner of the car you hit and accept responsibility for your poor driving, and stop trying to blame this on how the vehicle you hit was parked. It is your fault plain and simple.
