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

Who is at fault when you are backing out of a parking space and another car makes a left hand turn into the parking lot behind your car after you begun to back out?

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"

If you are backing up in a parking lot and you strike a car that is parked where there is not even a spot are you liable or is he?

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.

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.

Who's fault is it when you're backing out of a parking spot into the main road and someone is reversing into a parking spot behind you off of the main road and causes accident?

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.

Who's fault it is If the backing up car hits the rear door and panel of the Car which is waiting for the car in front of it to pull out of it parking spot?

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.

If you are backing out of a parking spot and another person cuts in behind you to get into a parking space who is at fault if you back into them?

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.
