If the person backing out of the space had not seen a pedestrian walking the "wrong way" it would be the fault of the driver of the car backing out....... So it is the fault of the person backing out. They did not look to make sure it was safe to do so.


The person backing out. If you were in the lane/road behind them they needed to use caution when backing out.




both because ur not quick enough ;) the other guy is thick cos he drove into you!! So more his fault!!


The person backing out due to the other car having the right-of-way.


You are at fault. You are backing out of a space and you must yield the right of way to the other vehicles traveling in the aisle.


The two insurance companies are going to bicker back and forth about this. The speeding car certainly shares in the fault. The person backing out might, as well, if they were inattentive.



At least in PA, the person backing up is at fault, no matter how stupid the other driver is. My brother got burned backing up and hit someone speeding through the parking lot. to the best of my knowledge, all parking lot accidents are 50/50.



The backing vehicle is at fault. We are always supposed to look to ensure the path is clear before placing our vehicle in motion.


The driver of the parking car is at fault... he shd allways keep a man to inform him about danger, whenever backing in such a speedy street....



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


This can go either way, most often it is the person who was backing out that is at fault. witnesses would be great to prove this is what happened.


You are simply because you have more responsibility when backing up to make sure it it clear.I found this out when backing out of driveway(mine) and someone turning in hit me.The insurance paid (we both had the same company) but cancelled my insurance.Alfa


If you're backing up, generally, you're the one at fault (regardless of how stupid the other driver is). However, some insurance companies may differ.


If he was driving forward past his intended parking space to take yours, then he is at fault. Cutting across is not permitted in parking lots although many people do it anyway.



Both of you are probably at fault. If you see another person backing you should stop and signal the other driver if possible. Otherwise stop and wait until that driver completes his backing maneuver.Added: It is the obligation of the backing driver to ascertain that his movement does not interfere with any other vehicles. In this instance, you both apparently failed to do so.


The car that is moving is normally the one at fault. No matter how someone is positioned you should not drive into them (going forward or in reverse). It therefore seems to me that the car backing out of the driveway is at fault.


This depends on the state you are in and most times whether it is a private parking lot or not. florida is a no fault state so it you back out and hit someone or if someone hits you while backing out then you are both equally at fault and both insurances have to cover. most cops here dont even ask because in a private parking lot it doesnt matter both insurances cover anyways.


It is the fault of the person backing out. You have the right-of-way if you are driving in a usual and safe manor. The person who hit you should be cited for "backing without caution".


The vehicle backing up is the one that caused that accident by not looking so they get 99% of the blame. However the other gets1% as they were nOt stopping. BTW did this happen to u?
