Being in an accident can be both traumatic and confusing, especially when it comes to determining who is at fault. In general, three different entities work to determine fault in a car accident. Those entities are the police, the courts, and the insurance company. The police officers will interview all people involved and witnesses and fill out a police report. Some police reports will make a determination of who is at fault, but many do not.
However, the police report and any citations that are issued may play a part in who the court determines is at fault in an accident. Courts may also determine to what extent a driver is at fault. For example, one driver may be determined to have been 20% at fault and another 80%. This can affect compensation.
