Backing out of a parking spaceThe person backing up is At Fault, they have a greater duty the fact that the person is driving on the wrong side makes no difference. the person shoudl of waited to back out.

--yes but like all accidents like these, it is circumstantial; if person A is backing out, person B is flying by @ 20+ mph, person A checks everywhere & sees nothing and proceeds to back out. they are then hit by car A who is at fault for 'not able to control his/her vehicle'. if both are going proper speeds & it is just a bump, it is definitely A's fault, cuz B has the right of way

Who is at fault when a person is pulling out of a parking spot and going slowly using caution and a car traveling the parking lot collide?

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.

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.
