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.

Whose at fault when pulling through a parking spot and the car to the right of you is getting out of there car?
The driver. Another View: It depends on the circumstances of the collision. If the door struck the side of the moving vehicle, then the person opening the door of the parked car is at fault. If the moving vehicle struck the open door of the parked car, then the moving car is at fault.
Both parties are.
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.
Whomever backed into it is at fault.
Of course it seems like the moving vehicle is. They should have left a note if they were an individual with morals and who would'nt like that to be done to them. ADDITIONAL INFO: Though each accident is handled on a case by case basis, generally the operator of the moving vehicle would be at fault, however instances where a vehicle is illegally parked or grossly impeding traffic may warrant further investigation. In such cases… Read More

What happens if a fully insured driver admits fault for hitting a parked vehicle but the other driver involved in the accident had no license insurance or registration?

Who is at fault if your car is parked in a car park and another car enters the spot next to you and scrapes the side of your car?
Well its mostly yours or his-hers cause if you parked to close to yellow line in the lot then your car is going to get scraped but if the other person is zooming like a mad man and just wants a spot than its is FAULT.

This is not enough information to answer the question. If a car hits a parked vehicle then the moving vehicle would be at fault. If both vehicles are moving then the issue gets more complicating.
No Fault insurance ONLY deals with medical injuries to you if you are driving. No Fault has nothing to do with property damage liability. If you hit a parked car, then your Property Damage Liability coverage would pay to repair the parked car and your own Collision coverage (if you have it...it's optional) would pay to repair your car.
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. Would you have hit this car if you had been looking? 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...

The person who drove their car into the parked car.
You can fight anything but I am sorry to tell you that you will loose anyway. The way it is looked at is that if you are moving and the other vehicle is parked you are the only one that can avoid the accident and therefor are at fault.

More info-- one driver was speeding down a residential street late for work and hit a parked car's slightly open door and ripped it off.
