Who is fault if I was reversing out of a car parking space when a car reverses back into me?

If you were both backing out at the same time, then it will be considered joint fault, sometimes called contributory negligence. That means both drivers failed to notice the other driver.

Who's fault is it when you're backing out of a parking spot into the main road and someone is reversing into a parking spot behind you off of the main road and causes accident?

I'm confused by the question. You were both backing? And back into each other? If that is correct more than likely you will each be 50% at fault. If you can provide more information (ie, where on each vehicle exactly is the damage, who was farther out etc), then perhaps I can be of more assistance.

If the parking spaces are marked, as long as both vehicles are within their respective space, then car 2 would be at "fault" but there is no law which covers this anyway.

If you are in a parking lot and backing up and a car comes from off the street and while both cars are moving you hit each other who is at fault?

Were you backing and they driving forward in the lane? If so more than likely you will be deemed the higher degree of fault. Vehicle that are reversing are required to use a higher degree of care. More details and I might be of greater assistance to you.

both of you for not looking back

What if two cars backing out of a parking spot and a vehicle coming from your right backs out the two cars collide right rear bumper to right rear bumper who is at fault?

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.
