Whoever is backing up is at fault. No matter what the circumstances. Watchout!! Even if you are involved in a collision with an unlicensed driver who is driving recklessly, if you are backing up it will still be YOUR FAULT ! The question will answer itself if you didn't try to force the wording so much: Don't you think who is at fault "...when you back into the side of some one...." seems pretty clear?

What happens if someone backs into you in a parking lot?

It depends - was it hit and run ? Were both cars backing or one parked and one backed into it? If the other party is no where to be found, typically your Collision coverage ( if you have this coverage) will pay after you pay the deductible. It may also increase your future rates (and /or loss of discounts for being accident free) - so use some logic if it over $1,000 to repair.

If you are backing out of a driveway and a car hits you who is liable?

Anytime a vehicle is departing private property and entering a road, it must yield the right-of-way to traffic. The liability is with the backing driver until the backing vehicle is fully into the road. The vehicle already in the road must still take all prudent steps to avoid a collision where possible. If either vehicle is operated in an unsafe manner, the liability will be assigned accordingly.
