No. The driver is responsible.
If the accident was caused by the uninsured driver than the uninsured driver is definitely still responsible.
The driver responsible for the accident is always at fault. However, Both parties are usually found at fault in this instance. This is generally called Joint fault.
The license status of the other driver has no bearing on your liability. If you were at fault you are still responsible for any damages and injuries. Just report it to your insurance company as you would any other accident.
If the driver with the suspended license caused the accident then he/she is responsible.
the owner of the car with insurance will be responsible

The driver is responsible for whatever goes on in the car. If he/she is distracted he shouldn't be driving but should immediately pull over. If he/she has used the poor judgment to allow an irresponsible person in the car and is subsequently distracted, the driver is still responsible. In the end, no matter what happens, the driver is responsible.
I assume that you mean a rented vehicle with an unlisted driver having an accident. If you allow an unlisted driver to operate the vehicle then the person who signed the rental agreement will be responsible for damages because he allowed the unauthorized to drive.
Only if the driver was responsible and only for his liability
I believe whomever caused the accident is at fault, whether their car was damaged or not. * The evidence compiled in the accident investigation will determine the responsible party. To determine who is at fault in a vehicle accident investigators use a method referred to as "chain of causation" and begin the investigation with the vehicle that was last in motion. This does not necessarily mean that the driver of said vehicle is the one responsible for the accident. It is quite possible that the driver of the vehicle that was not damaged will be the one determined to be responsible for causing the accident.
Yes. Ultimately the driver is responsible for the vehicle and for everything that happens to/by it. If the driver wasn't responsible, who would you suggest might be?

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.
Any driver that is the backing vehicle has a greater and duty and care to maintain proper lookout at all times. The driver that was traveling on the throughfare has control of the lane of travel and the backing vehicle must yield to them. Infortunately, you would the proximate cause of the accident for improper backing.
Most cases you get jailed if the accident is severe. If its not too much you get a ticket for driving without licensed driver. Depends on country to country though
