If you strike him - you are At Fault. He can be charged with the No Parking violation but YOU are charged with the collision.

If you were legally parked, the person backing up is at fault. If you were in a "No Parking" area, you are at fault.


If you back into somthing its your fault regardless of whether it was parked improperly or not. You were suposed to be looking


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!!!!!!!


The driver of the parking car is at fault... he shd allways keep a man to inform him about danger, whenever backing in such a speedy street....


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


In most states, fault lies with the person who had the "last clear chance" to avoid the accident. If you saw the car backing up at you and just sat there and let it hit you, it's your fault. If you saw the car backing up and thought "I can get past them" and instead hit them, it's your fault.


no matter where a vehicle is parked, the moving vehicle is at fault every time.


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 up. That is, unless the other person had a clear chance to avoid the accident and failed to do so (i.e., wasn't paying attention).



depends on whether or not the car is parked well. if the car is parked properly, in the right spot then it should be the car that hit it that is at fault.


you mean valet parking dont they take away your car if you valet parking on the blue??? ^_^


This can go either way, most often it is the person who was backing out that is at fault. witnesses would be great to prove this is what happened.


When it comes to parking lots things get complictaed. In general Parking lots are private property, meaning that the rules of the road are not always in effect. Usually if an accident occurs and the police are called they will issue an accident report with the notation of cannot dissern fault, meaning they were not there at the time of the accident therefore they cannot tell who was at fault.


you are backing and they are going forward in the lane? more than likely it will be you, that is deemed 'at fault'.......the party backing must use a higher degree of care...doesn't matter (in this instance) that you are hit in the rear.......


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.


A vehicle traveling in a parking lot has established use of the lane and the right of way. A vehicle in a parking space and backing into the lane must yield to oncoming traffic. Therefore, if a vehicle is backing out of a parking space and pulls into the path of an oncoming vehicle that has already established the lane, the vehicle backing would be at fault for the accident. However, if the vehicle which established use of the lane had an opportunity to avoid hitting the vehicle backing out of the space and failed to do so, there could be comparative negligence on both vehicles or on the one who had the opportunity to avoid the accident.


The person backing out I am asuming other person has finished reversing and is leaving if I understood correctly


Rule of thumb: if two cars are in an accident and only one of them is moving, it's the fault of the car that was moving.





As long as the parked vehicle is parked properly and not illegally parked in any manner, then the vehicle that rear-ended the parked car is at fault. Now if the parked car is sitting illegally (such as double parked or parked in a no parking zone, etc.) then the parked car is at fault or even both the parked car AND the car that hits it are BOTH at fault.


Both partys are at fault and each party will need to file there vehicle under there own insurance. Parking lot accidents are always share fault unless one of the vehicle was parked, but since both vehicles were backing out at the same time, both partys are at fault unless you get a kind person to admit it was there fault.
