I was reversing past some parked cars and one pulled out and I hit it - who is at fault?

I was reversing down a narrow road on the left-hand side in my van. There were cars parked all the way down the right-hand side of the road. A car that was parked there decided to pull out and I bumped his rear passenger door. Who is at fault?

It would be their fault, they should make sure it is safe to emerge on to the roadway. They pulled out into your "correctly proceeding pathway".
