The person backing out. If you were in the lane/road behind them they needed to use caution when backing out.

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



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.


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.


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.



If you are driving the backing car, no matter WHERE the other cas is located, YOU are the one at fault if you collide with it.


If the person backing out of the space had not seen a pedestrian walking the "wrong way" it would be the fault of the driver of the car backing out....... So it is the fault of the person backing out. They did not look to make sure it was safe to do so.


The person who is backing out of the parking space



The greater fault lies with the person backing out of the parking space. You may still be partially at fault for not driving with due care.


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.


both because ur not quick enough ;) the other guy is thick cos he drove into you!! So more his fault!!


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!!!!!!!



If you back into somthing its your fault regardless of whether it was parked improperly or not. You were suposed to be looking




In most states, fault lies with the person who had the "last clear chance" to avoid the accident. If you saw the car backing up at you and just sat there and let it hit you, it's your fault. If you saw the car backing up and thought "I can get past them" and instead hit them, it's your fault.


the person who crashed into you, because that person was supposed to have yield to let you pass


It is the other person's fault because they had to have seen you pulling in first. They were being greedy.
