How is fault determined in a car accident?

To determine fault in a car accident, the police officer who responds to the collision takes statements from each of the involved parties and requests information from any witnesses who may have seen the accident. In the event that the statements from the individuals involved in the collision do not match up, the officer will take into account the location of the accident, any traffic signs in close proximity, and any witness testimony before assigning fault.
