Determining Responsibility

With respect to the determination of how much responsibility I bear in the auto accident, is that a negotiation between you and the other insurance company, or is there some other formula that is used? Is it a police report?

It’s a combination of factors, but essentially, when an car accident report doesn’t cite either party or find either party at fault, the next step often involves legal expertise, ideally from a car accident lawyer in Reno, NV. This professional can facilitate a negotiation with the insurance company, or if necessary, guide the case to trial to be determined by a jury or judge regarding who is at fault and to what degree.
