The general rule is that it's the moving vehicle that's responsible for making sure that the road is clear. If both vehicles were moving at the impact it gets more difficult. Then it has to be settled who had the right of way.

You are.

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.

Technically you are at fault because they had the right of way and you backed into their path.

Who is at fault if you backed out of your drive and were about to drive off when another car backed out of the facing street and hit your driver's door?

If your car was already in the street when the other driver backed into you, it sounds like it's more his fault then yours. Unless there's serious damage to your car, the best thing would probably be to treat it as a shared-fault accident. Each driver pay for their own damage. No sense creating animosity with a neighbor over a mistake.
