If they backed into you, it's their fault. Failure to yield.

Well if you were backing in and hit someone then it is your fault. But if they hit you, then it is their fault.


The backing vehicle is at fault. We are always supposed to look to ensure the path is clear before placing our vehicle in motion.


At least in PA, the person backing up is at fault, no matter how stupid the other driver is. My brother got burned backing up and hit someone speeding through the parking lot. to the best of my knowledge, all parking lot accidents are 50/50.


Generally, the person backing out is at fault. If you are both backing out you're probably both at fault and will probably share the cost of repair, with each repairing their own. yes because you were backing out and they hit your car its their fault!!!!!!! yes because you were backing out and they hit your car its their fault!!!!!!!


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 backing out because they have to yield because the others have the right of way.



Any time the driver who is backing is at fault, in all 50 states.



It would be the person driving fault because it is like the same thing as driving and hitting someone.


If you were legally parked, the person backing up is at fault. If you were in a "No Parking" area, you are at fault.


If you strike him - you are at fault. He can be charged with the No Parking violation but YOU are charged with the collision.


Same thing happened to me in CA & we were found to both be at fault....


You are at fault. You are backing out of a space and you must yield the right of way to the other vehicles traveling in the aisle.


The person at fault would be the one backing into a parking space. Because they are going to look at it as, your supposed to pull into the parking space front first, not backing in. So it would be your fault. But I'm sure that both of you would get a ticket or something else, because they hit you, and you are violating parking lot conduct.


This can go either way, most often it is the person who was backing out that is at fault. witnesses would be great to prove this is what happened.



anytime someone is backing out of a driveway or parking spot, they are at fault. The other driver will only be sited for speeding.



"Who is at fault when someone is backing out of a driveway on private property and you are pulling into the driveway and you get hit?" "Who is at fault when someone is backing out of a driveway on private property and you are pulling into the driveway and you get hit?"



Both partys are at fault and each party will need to file there vehicle under there own insurance. Parking lot accidents are always share fault unless one of the vehicle was parked, but since both vehicles were backing out at the same time, both partys are at fault unless you get a kind person to admit it was there fault.


In most circumstances, the backing vehicle has the greater duty of care and would be found at fault.
