That's a pretty general question and laws vary from state to state, but in Florida (and I believe in general), any accident that occurs in a parking lot follows the same guidelines as any other accident. A person can be cited or found At Fault for improper backing or any other offense in a parking lot. Usually, the fact that an accident occurred in a parking lot is only important in determining agency jurisdiction. In many states the police will not come to an accident that occurs in a private parking lot unless there are injuries. It is very important to secure witnesses that were not in either car to help make your case. In the event where two cars back into each other often times the person who is farthest out when the collision occurs is not at fault. Almost always a person who backs into a vehicle that is traveling down the isle is at fault.
