I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.
Usually, when two cars collide while backing out, both are partially at fault, regardless of who got out of the space first. If you looked and he was not backing up before you started, and there was nothing you could have done more carefully under the circumstances, then you have the option of filing a lawsuit against both the other driver and Pizza Hut. The store is responsible for negligent acts of any drivers who were working at the time. A suit for this amount would typically be filed in Small Claims Court.
Another option is to send a letter to Pizza Hut's corporate offices or legal department (or both), along with a copy of the accident report and any pictures you have, and see if they would be willing to pay you the $1,500 to avoid going to court. A lawsuit could cost them a lot more than $1,500 in legal fees, so they might be willing to work with you.
