Who is at fault when a parked car in parking lot is hit?
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.
The general rule of thumb is that any car moving that hits a parked car is at fault.
If the driver had hit a pedestrian or a car that was sitting, waiting for a stoplight, who would be at fault? The driver is responsible for whatever he hits. While the parked car will get a parking ticket, that is not a "moving violation", and cannot be considered the cause of a collision. Drivers are responsible for avoiding ALL obstacles, even illegally parked cars.
Yours, because the question is ... even though that car was illegally parked, what type of driving were you doing that caused you to hit it? No fault only applies to injuries. Property damage is the responsibility of the at fault driver.

driver of parked vehicle
Of course it is your fault. The fact that the car was illegally parked is of no consequence. You didn't look where you were backing or you would not have hit the parked car.

Perhaps the illegally parked car is a Mini Cooper, parked illegally 1 foot behind a Hummer and therefore not visable when the driver looks before backing up...
At least partially.

The car that is reversing out of the parking.
Yours. If it was stationary and you hit it then it was your fault.
This depends. Often, it is the parked car's fault because the door can be considered as an obstruction. However, it is possible that the passing car may be at fault, especially if it can be proven that its driving could endanger the parked car. Always check with the claims department of your insurer and the local law. Local law tends to place fault with the parked car.

The Person who hit your car.
You are responsible for the damage you cause to the car. This is what the liability coverage on your policy is for.
