That of the person who opens the door.
That of the person who stands close to a door that opens in their direction.
What a stupid question.
Get a grip man! It's CHEESE!
If I hear voices I'll open it very slowly and peek with my head first.
Ofcourse if the people are standing too close to the door you risk decapitation.
If the door swings outward into the hall, then I openly not slowly, but not fast... just the right speed where no one will get hurt but it doesn't look like I'm trying to spy on someone from behind... but I never slam those kind of doors open... it's just asking for someone to get hurt... is it a masculinity thing to slam it open? "Grr I'm strong, I can push 5 lbs of wood that swings are hinges... I'm so strong!"

Sometimes accidents happen. Still, I think both the opener and the... uh, loiterer (If that's the right word for it) have some responsibility - I generally open doors more slowly, and I don't stand near doors just in case somebody would need to use it/pass through it. Though, as I said, accidents happen! :P

Actually interior doors should always be opening towards the inside of the room. So it's the builder's/architect's (although i highly doubt they would do that on purpose) or even the building management's fault for having a door that opens to the outside of the room. The only exception to that are corridor doors etc, in cases where doors need to swing both ways.
its obviously the guy getting hit fault because the guy opening the door cant see through it, as the old saying goes "watch where your going". no one is going to open the door slowly when you know that that door can come swinging open any minute yet you continue to be oblivious. i would laugh my ass off if i saw that bro

Pretty much depends but mostly the fault of the person opening the door assuming it does anything worthy of complaining about. You shouldn't ever slam open doors, basically. Somebody standing outside the door could have been somebody walking by.
It's both party's responsibility to be aware of other people in the world, but anyone that feels the need to swing a door open with tremendous amounts of force is a tool. Unless you're escaping from a burning building or an ax-murderer, exercise some courtesy and common sense when operating doors... This concludes Kindergarten 101.
If a door opens outward into a hallway, then whoever built the building is just stupid, NEVER have a door open out to a walkway, thats just asking for a lawsuit. In fact, all doors should open inwards(into the room from walkway), unless they are emergency exits, or high traffic one way.
In either case, I'd say there's no one at fault here. Accidents happen. Maybe don't open doors that open outwards so fiercely in the future (although frankly, I've never seen a bathroom door that opens outwards; most rooms have doors that open inwards in my experience), but otherwise I don't really see the problem.
If you can't see through the door, open the door as if there was someone standing there until you can clearly see whether someone actually is or not.
It's kinda funny, there's this one bathroom at this one college I went to that opened outwards into a very narrow alcove. As a result of many...incidents, they had to put a sign on the inside of the door to remind people to open it slowly.
OT: Whenever there's a door that opens outward that I can't see through, I TRY to open it slowly. Sometimes I'm in a rush and forget, but I try and be cautious when I can.

I voted both but I blame the inventor of the door and humans for using it.
Standing within the radius of any door is dumb. It just is. But sometimes it happens for a variety of perfectly reasonable reasons. Opening a door so quickly as to cause injury to others is also dumb. As the first reply pointed out, both people should be aware that there are other people in the world, and any time you take an action you should consider the possible implications of that action on others. Especially when there are large, heavy, moving objects involved.
And thus I give you: MALE contraception!
