Is it possible that you are both At Fault? The person backing out is at fault. He was stopped and should have been looking before backing out. However, if the parking lot is designed so that you can only go one way, then you may be at fault. The insurance companies will look at the police report and fight it out.

You backed into a car in an empty parking lot The person with the car chose not to park in one of the empty parking spaces but parked along side the ATM Does this help the person who backedinto thecar?

I doubt it. It was an empty parking lot. There was no obligation on the person parking to use one of the available spaces, unless there was a prohibition notice displayed which forbid parking beside the ATM. Even then, such a prohibition would be unenforceable if the parking lot is private land. For the driver of the parked car to have any 'blame', there would need to be a sign warning them that cars parked in this area were especially liable to damage. As the driver of the moving vehicle, you carry the blame for the collision.

Who is at fault if you backed out of your drive and were about to drive off when another car backed out of the facing street and hit your driver's door?

If your car was already in the street when the other driver backed into you, it sounds like it's more his fault then yours. Unless there's serious damage to your car, the best thing would probably be to treat it as a shared-fault accident. Each driver pay for their own damage. No sense creating animosity with a neighbor over a mistake.

Who is at fault in an accident where a vehicle is backing out of a parking spot and strikes a vehicle that is turning into the parking lot in Texas?

If my memory serves me correctly, it would be the fault of the driver who was in reverse if that driver struck the other car mostly on its broad side. After all, the driver who is pulling out of a parking lot has the right-of-way as opposed to someone in a parking spot. As far as an insurance claim goes the drivers would have to have insurance, and the driver who was struck would want to make sure they were driving within the bounds of the law (such as observing posted speed limits, stop signs, direction arrows,etc.).Hope this helps.
