Who is at fault in backing up side impact collision?
Whoever is backing up is at fault. No matter what the circumstances. Watchout!!

Who is at fault in a car accident when you're backing out of your parking space slowing and she is backing out of her space My right side back bumper hits her left side back bumper?
Both of you are probably at fault. If you see another person backing you should stop and signal the other driver if possible. Otherwise stop and wait until that driver completes his backing maneuver. Added: It is the obligation of the backing driver to ascertain that his movement does not interfere with any other vehicles. In this instance, you both apparently failed to do so.

Generally, who ever is in reverse should yield the right of way.

Although if he didn't see you were backing or you had no turn signal on, you would be the one at fault.

If this is a scenario that I am picturing to be, a T-Bone type accident, then the other driver who hit the side of the car is definitely at fault.

I can tell you that if there are security cameras, guards, witnesses, use them to support your claim and rid yourself of your fault-determination. This is…

It could be a "no fault" situation. If the driver of a vehicle sees a vehicle that is backing they should exercise caution and either sound their horn (to alert the backing vehicle) and/or they should slow or stop or take similar action to avoid or to prevent an accident. Secondly, the person who is backing should only back up when it is safe to do. This may mean getting out to check for any…

There are several things to consider in a parking lot accident like this one: * Where is the point-of-impact between your two vehicles? If the other car backed into your left rear door, for instance, he's probably at-fault for this loss because you have been well in control of the aisleway. * Where were your vehicles located after the impact? Was the other car half-way out of its spot? Three-quarters? Or just starting to back…

Take the fault as an inclined plane with the earths surface as the horizontal plane. The foot wall side of the fault is always located to the side where the plane of the fault and the horizontal forms an acute angle. The hanging wall side of the fault is always located to the side of the fault where the plane of the fault and the horizontal makes an obtuse angle. The terminology takes no regard…
Who is at fault if I was backing out of a parking space when my boss hit me on the side as she pulled into the parking space beside me?
According to the question, it sounds like a misjudged turn. If your vehicle was straight during the back out, your boss would be at fault. If you were turning and your vehicle was partially in the space next to the one you were backing out in, your boss would still be at fault. Don't be afraid to go through insurance or assign your boss to being at fault. It would be illegal for your boss…
Whose fault is it if the other driver claims you pulled out on him while he was on the main road but you looked before you turned out and didn't see him and you only heard his brakes for one second?
Are you hoping to be able to go to court and say "WikiAnswers says it wasn't my fault."? No such luck. If he was on the main road and you entered from a side road or driveway, it's almost certainly your fault whether you saw him or not, unless you were a significant distance from the intersection before the collision.
While travelling on a road inside school grounds. Approach a car park to right car waiting to turn Car pulls out of a car park hits right hand side of the car Who is liable?
There is a lot more to determining this, but both parties will be partially at fault. The person behind the other car had the duty to try to get out of the way, the person backing up had the duty to see before he backed up. If it is as simple as stated, it would most likely be 10-20% fault for the person who got hit, 80-90% for the person backing up.
