How Insurance Figures Out Fault in an Accident

How Insurance Assigns Fault

Accidents will often involve three stages of stress: the initial accident, waiting for the insurance company to decide who is owed what, and then having injuries and damages healed and fixed. While the accident itself and the process of getting everything fixed and healed is something no one wants to deal with, many people will say the time period of waiting to hear the judgment from the insurance is the worst part of being in an accident. Insurance companies make the ultimate decision in figuring out who's at fault in an accident, and that result will determine the amount of money someone is given to help recover from the accident and it will decide if someone will have to pay higher rates for the next several years due to that accident.
