Each state, city, or town has its own ordinances. In most cases, the person who chooses to use the cart is responsible for the safety of people and property in maintaining control of the cart. In too many cases, the person who causes damage by irresponsible control of a cart does not remain on the scene to accept responsibility for property damage. Always try to get the personal information from the responsible party, or if they have left the premises, check with the store management for any surveillance video that may be helpful.
A claim's adjuster to a very big, national discount store said it is definitely NOT as simple as posting a sign that limits the stores' liability. That is essentially worthless. Stores send employees out to scan the parking lot for carts. Each suit is decided on a case by case basis, and there are multiple factors. How long was the cart outside? How recently was the parking area checked? For instance, say you went inside, and 5 minutes later, someone pushes a cart into your car. You discover it and file a claim. You will probably lose, because the store will say they cannot guarantee 100% protection from shopping carts. And as long as they are actively checking and performing their due diligence, they will win. However, say the cart has been out there an hour, and then it damages your car. That may be considered negligence on the store's part and they may be considered liable. I say "may" because I am not an attorney, but I have been through the ringer with this sort of thing, and it all comes down to the judge. There may be other factors as well.
The person who is backing out of the parking space
Not in a public parking lot. But if it is a controlled parking low where the employees park and retrieve the cars, the lot owner is responsible. He probably has a sign posted saying he is not responsible for accidents, but he is.
Her parents would generally be responsible for the cost of the damages. However, you would be responsible or partially responsible if you contributed to her accident (such as by improperly parking). I would suggest small claims court as a fast and inexpensive resolution to the matter.
Not for one car damaging another, the driver is responsible for that, but if a light pole falls on your car perhaps
As a airport parking attendant, one can be blamed for many scratches that may occur to the car while the owner of the car is away on vacation or business.
If the parking is on their property, yes, they can. If you are paying for parking yourself, you have the ability to do what you wish. But they aren't responsible for you.

You can be fired for asking another Employee to clock you in while being in the parking lot.
Yes. You are responsible for parking your vehicle in a way that damage will not be caused to another's vehicle. So say you park on a hill and the vehicle rolls back and hits another vehicle, you are liable.
The Vehicle that hit you would be responsible for your damages to your vehicle.
definitely not, perhaps if you parked in a no parking zone.
it is the person coming out of the parking space
if you hit a stationary object - you will most likely be found at fault
