it is not the trucks falt because the carstopped behind the truck when they new it was pulling out
both of you for not looking back
Depends on the jurisdiction, but typically, two vehicles backing up is a 50/50.
Hard to say. Possibly equal fault by both parties but most likely the person backing out.
The person backing out. If you were in the lane/road behind them they needed to use caution when backing out.
The car that is in motion is ALWAYS at fault.
the car that is backing out because they have to yield because the others have the right of way.
Clearly, if you hit a stopped vehicle with yours then you are at fault, regardless of whether you were going forward or backward. Similarly, anyone backing up has an obligation to use the utmost care.Here is a fact you should know . Any accident in a parking lot is not covered by any insurance , only wrecks on public roads . Insurers do cover accidents that occur in private parking lots. The police however will not respond nor make a report unless there are injuries. The person who was backing up will most likely be the "at fault" driver
Originally you are at fault unless you were in the process of backing up before the offender had arrived. If however he was present before you started to back up and claims he was unable to stop than you were at fault. GOOD LUCK IN COURT :)
Most of the time this will be a 50/50. If there is Video evedence or a witness that says one or other car was being careless or driving to fast or there is other evedence that could change. One of the things to look at is did the backing car back into the side of the other car or did the backing vehical get hit in the side and how far down the side? If you have evedence of this you might convince the judge and your insurance company who was "At Fault"
Think about this your are backing up, and your neighbors little boy is playing in your yard, and he isn't supposed to be in your yard and you hit him, (a) did you see him? can you hit him because he is not supposed to be there? We are responsible to know what is behind us and be aware of where our car is going. Two wrongs do not make it right. I think you are responsible for hitting a car that is behind you when your are backing up.
yes you are correct. the person backing up is responsible for making sure the area behind their vehicle is clear.
Any driver that is the backing vehicle has a greater and duty and care to maintain proper lookout at all times. The driver that was traveling on the throughfare has control of the lane of travel and the backing vehicle must yield to them. Infortunately, you would the proximate cause of the accident for improper backing.

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.
The backing place is located behind the brake pads on some cars and behind the brake shoes on all cars. It prevents debris from entering the brake system.
Just Imagine a parking lot where you can park on both sides. I saw a car backing up from its parking spot from right in front of me, so i stopped and gave him enough space for him to back up. On the left side, this guy backed up and hit my rear door and pannel. he is not accepting his fault. The reason he says is, their was couple of cars standing behind me, and one white car did not have time to wait, he over took me on the left. So this guy thought that their was no car behind and he backed up and hit my car! So whos fault it is? Should i go for insurance claim. This guy wants things to get settled privately by paying 50% of expense, still i will end by spending 500$ from my packet. Plz do advice.
The first major difference is the trailer, which turns on a pivot point. Another major difference is the blind spot. In a car, you can look out the rear window at things directly behind you - not so with a tractor-trailer.
Activate your turn signal; wait for the other driver to go around you.
check behind the car before getting in
You should always be looking behind you when backing up. You don't look forward when reversing because you're not moving in a forward direction.
If you are both moving, the one at fault is whoever the police officer says is at fault on the accident report. That's all I can tell you with this information. I hope you called the police. They will say you backed into them and you will say they ran into you. Without a police report faulting one of you, the insurance company will say both are 50% at fault which means each pays for their own damage.
The person who ran into you from behind of course because they should be stopping, or slowing down when you turn in the parking lot.
it is ALWAYS the fault of the backing driver. They bear the responsibility to make sure they can back with safety.
