You were on the road so had the right of way. The person in the driveway is At Fault. He/she didn't yield. They hit you. You DIDN'T hit them. Remember that if you go to court or talk with insurance.

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.
