How To Determine Who Is At Fault In A Car Accident

Whenever it comes to determining who is at fault for a car accident, generally you will have to identify and prove who was acting in a careless, negligent, or reckless manner. In many accidents, determining which party is at fault for the accident is easy, making it simple to decide who is responsible for paying the price of property damage and injuries. However, in some car accident cases, it can be more difficult for the at fault party to be agreed upon. Another complication you may find, when trying to prove who is at fault, is that law enforcement agencies, insurance companies, and even the court system- may all weigh in on your case.

How Police Identify The At Fault Party

Whenever a car accident is reported to, or observed by the police, the officers involved will be responsible for preparing a police report outlining the incident. This will be done once the police officer conducts interviews with all parties involved. This includes all drivers involved in the collison, as well as passengers and witnesses. They will ask questions that are intended to help the piece together an accurate and thorough understanding of the accident and how it occurred. After this is done, the police officer will submit their report to the police department. These statements from police officers may include who they believe was at fault in the accident. However, in many cases, the police do not make a note of who the at fault party is, leaving it open for both parties to work it out on their own.
