It would be the person driving fault because it is like the same thing as driving and hitting someone.

Well if you were backing in and hit someone then it is your fault. But if they hit you, then it is their fault.


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



Any time the driver who is backing is at fault, in all 50 states.

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 person at fault would be the one backing into a parking space. Because they are going to look at it as, your supposed to pull into the parking space front first, not backing in. So it would be your fault. But I'm sure that both of you would get a ticket or something else, because they hit you, and you are violating parking lot conduct.



anytime someone is backing out of a driveway or parking spot, they are at fault. The other driver will only be sited for speeding.


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.

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.


Generally, the person backing out is at fault. If you are both backing out you're probably both at fault and will probably share the cost of repair, with each repairing their own. yes because you were backing out and they hit your car its their fault!!!!!!! yes because you were backing out and they hit your car its their fault!!!!!!!


In most circumstances, the backing vehicle has the greater duty of care and would be found at fault.

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 greater fault lies with the person backing out of the parking space. You may still be partially at fault for not driving with due care.


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.
