HI, Working in a car insurance company, you would claim off your car insurance as the vehicle was involved in the accident, however because it was on your own personal property you may be able to claim off your house insurance depending on the terms of your policy, you will find most homeowners insurance only covers the house itself and not the surrounding gardens

Fight it! If the driveway was yours, then the other person had no business driving there. It does depend on what the reasons were. If you were parked more than 12 inches from the curb, then that is neglegent - it is law to be within 12 inches of the curb (never more). So find out why and keep all evidence. If you have to take that person to court, do so.

Who is at fault if a car blocks your driveway and you back into it?

You know the answer: you hit a parked car! You're absolutely liable. On one hand, you should have been looking while backing out so it would be your fault. He may get a citation for parking there, but you could have avoided an accident by looking first. You will be lucky if you are not cited for reckless and dangerous driving. (In some states, contributory negligence on the part of the parked car's owner could reduce your liability, but you would still be at fault. Your best option is to report vehicles that are illegally parked and avoid any possible accidents.)
