    It may be that both of you will be considered at fault, but you were backing up in a situation where you would not be expected to be backing up.

    It may also depend on where on each vehicle contact was made, meaning if his/her rear bumper hit your side fender, then he would carry a bigger liability and vice versa.

    An even better question is who is liable to whom? Someone's insurer... Seriously, i pay for insurance so I can use it when the time comes. And whether it is a minor accident or God forbid something major, you can bet the first contact I made is my claims department!
