Depends on the jurisdiction, but typically, two vehicles backing up is a 50/50.

Who is at fault when a person backing out of a parking spot backs into another car going the wrong way in a one-way parking lot?

Both of you are at fault to a degree. Depending on who primarily had the right of way, which in this case sounds like the person not in his or her parking space their insurance will actually be responsible for any damages that resulted. We are disputing this situation now. The insurance company says it was both parties fault. My question is, If I am traveling the interstate in the wrong direction and hit someone is it partialy their fault because they should have seen me coming? Wrong way mean "WRONG". I went through this exact thing, when a snowplow went up the wrong way in a marked one-way part of the parking lot row and hit my car as I was backing out. I thought for sure he would be held responsible. I wasn't expecting a truck from that direction. In the end, I was found to be at fault for backing out into him.


Who is at fault in Washington state where a vehicle is backing out and is almost completely out when another car hit the car backing?

Fault here would likely be shared. On the one hand, the driver backing really has no legal right to the lane they are backing into - you cannot cut someone off while you are backing up. But it seems you have described a situation in which the individual backing was well into the backing process when someone came along, from quite a distance, and hit them. Hence the driver in the lane already probably had the last clear chance to avoid the accident but chose not to and would hence bear the majority of the fault.

When exiting parking spot has the right of way?

This depends on the state you are in and most times whether it is a private parking lot or not. florida is a no fault state so it you back out and hit someone or if someone hits you while backing out then you are both equally at fault and both insurances have to cover. most cops here dont even ask because in a private parking lot it doesnt matter both insurances cover anyways.

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.
