Just Imagine a parking lot where you can park on both sides. I saw a car backing up from its parking spot from right in front of me, so i stopped and gave him enough space for him to back up. On the left side, this guy backed up and hit my rear door and pannel. he is not accepting his fault. The reason he says is, their was couple of cars standing behind me, and one white car did not have time to wait, he over took me on the left. So this guy thought that their was no car behind and he backed up and hit my car! So whos fault it is? Should i go for insurance claim. This guy wants things to get settled privately by paying 50% of expense, still i will end by spending 500$ from my packet. Plz do advice.

If they backed into you, they will be responsible for the damages. Hopefully they have insurance and you will not need to pay anything.

If you are backing out of a parking spot and another person cuts in behind you to get into a parking space who is at fault if you back into them?

If you are both moving, the one at fault is whoever the police officer says is at fault on the accident report. That's all I can tell you with this information. I hope you called the police. They will say you backed into them and you will say they ran into you. Without a police report faulting one of you, the insurance company will say both are 50% at fault which means each pays for their own damage.

If you get rear ended in a parking lot who is responsible?

You if you were backing up. If you were waiting at a stop sign or stoplight or even an entrance and someone else hit you, it would be the person behind's fault.
