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.

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


A vehicle traveling in a parking lot has established use of the lane and the right of way. A vehicle in a parking space and backing into the lane must yield to oncoming traffic. Therefore, if a vehicle is backing out of a parking space and pulls into the path of an oncoming vehicle that has already established the lane, the vehicle backing would be at fault for the accident. However, if the vehicle which established use of the lane had an opportunity to avoid hitting the vehicle backing out of the space and failed to do so, there could be comparative negligence on both vehicles or on the one who had the opportunity to avoid the accident.


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


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


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 person backing out I am asuming other person has finished reversing and is leaving if I understood correctly


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.


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





The operator of the backing vehicle is always at fault hen a stationary object is struck.


It sounds like the other vehicle was at fault for improper backing, but each state is different and some are no-fault states. Still, if you were in the roadway or parking lot ailse, then you are considered to have right of way. It is incumbent on the other vehicle to make sure the path is clear before backing into traffic.


It depends. Parking lots are private property so the usual rules of the road don't apply. In some states it is 50-50 as far as who's at fault, because both drivers have a responsibility to watch for other drivers. Do not admit fault and let the insurance companies handle it.


Both of you. Neither driver was watching where they were backing. The ultimate fault will be determined based on the police report and an investigation.



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.


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.


The vehicle backing up is the one that caused that accident by not looking so they get 99% of the blame. However the other gets1% as they were nOt stopping. BTW did this happen to u?



the person driving on the road has the right of way, which means he/she goes first, therefore you are to let the person pass by before backing your vehicle


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.


If my memory serves me correctly, it would be the fault of the driver who was in reverse if that driver struck the other car mostly on its broad side. After all, the driver who is pulling out of a parking lot has the right-of-way as opposed to someone in a parking spot. As far as an insurance claim goes the drivers would have to have insurance, and the driver who was struck would want to make sure they were driving within the bounds of the law (such as observing posted speed limits, stop signs, direction arrows,etc.).Hope this helps.
