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

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"
