The insurance follows the VEHICLE not the driver. The coverage that is on the vehicle will apply. IF the damage is under the deductible...this may want to be paid out of pocket. Who should take responsibility...well, that can be argued, but usually a friend dhould offer to pay the damages as they did the damage. YOU caused the damage, YOU are responsible to pay to fix it, out of your OWN poocket. It is called being a "ADULT" and taking responsibility for your own actions.

O.K. The vehicle that is backing out is backing out from private property. The vehicle that is pulling away should have the right of way.

Who is at fault in Washington state where a vehicle is backing out and is almost completely out when another car hit the car backing?

Fault here would likely be shared. On the one hand, the driver backing really has no legal right to the lane they are backing into - you cannot cut someone off while you are backing up. But it seems you have described a situation in which the individual backing was well into the backing process when someone came along, from quite a distance, and hit them. Hence the driver in the lane already probably had the last clear chance to avoid the accident but chose not to and would hence bear the majority of the fault.
