It sounds like the other vehicle was at fault for improper backing, but each state is different and some are no-fault states. Still, if you were in the roadway or parking lot ailse, then you are considered to have right of way. It is incumbent on the other vehicle to make sure the path is clear before backing into traffic.

It is not rare to be in this particular situation. Really, you are not at fault, but you still shouldn't get angry at the other vechicle's driver.Another View: Not enough information is given in the question. If the other car was stopped and waiting for you to back out and YOU ran into THEM, YOU are at fault.If both cars were in simultaneous motion (they were pulling in while you were backing out) BOTH parties are at fault. One for not yielding and the other for backing without caution.

Whose fault - my neighbor backed out of her driveway and hit my car while I was driving in the back lane Although I stopped and honked Now she claims that she was looking that I hit her.?

In any situation in which a vehicle backing out of a property hits another vehicle, the driver who was backing up is always at fault, barring speeding, impairment, or disregarded traffic controls/signs on the part of the driver who was on the road. Added: I concur. The vehicle operating in reverse must always yield to any other vehicle. The charge I am familiar with is "Backing Without Caution."

What if two cars are backing out of opposite places and hit each other: back right bumper and back left bumper on other vehicle collide. Is anyone at fault?
