take it easier on the clutch as your reversing

If you are driving the backing car, no matter WHERE the other cas is located, YOU are the one at fault if you collide with it.

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

The two best driving games are Parking Mania and Central Parking.

The benefits of having a car reversing camera are being able to have a better overview when parking the car. This enables the driver to park the car without colliding with other cars or objects in the way and to assume an efficient parking position.

If he was driving forward past his intended parking space to take yours, then he is at fault. Cutting across is not permitted in parking lots although many people do it anyway.

Usually the driver of the vehicle at the rear, as he/she should be paying attention to what is ahead of them. If you saw him/her reversing out you should have stopped and waited. If you did and were stationary, then the person reversing out is at fault, but you would need witnesses to prove it.

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

Avoid parking in crowded areas and small parking spaces.

The person who cuts across parking spots, it's illegal. If the parking lot is private property the damage caused in an accident is a civil matter not a legal one in most cases. Traffic laws do not extend to private property.

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.

Generally, a ticket from a parking in a handicapped parking space will not go on a traffic record. However, failure to pay the fine may result in driving privileges to be suspended.

Same as if your not parallel parking. Whoever it was that hit the other car is liable for the damages and repairs.

If they were not parked illegally then they are not responsible for your accident.

Sheet metal damage? And the one reversing out of the parking space is responsible, he's the one who should have made certain that the road was clear.

In Kentucky, the vehicle on the main roadway has the right-of-way, regardless of direction. The person exiting the parking lot, must yield to traffic!

Disturbing the Peace - Reckless Driving - Careless Driving.

Whomever caused the accident is generally considered the at fault party. It does not matter whether or not your in a parking lot.

Cutting across empty parking rows or diagonally through lots

I'm confused by the question. You were both backing? And back into each other? If that is correct more than likely you will each be 50% at fault. If you can provide more information (ie, where on each vehicle exactly is the damage, who was farther out etc), then perhaps I can be of more assistance.
