In the immediate aftermath of an auto collision, one of the first questions asked is bound to be: who was at fault? The answer to this question is highly important to those involved. This information is necessary to determine which party’s insurance company should cover damages and losses, and which party may be entitled to compensation due to an at-fault party’s negligence. And in some cases, an at-fault driver may even be subject to criminal charges. All of these critical legal decisions depend on accurately determining fault after an accident.
