The insurance companies determine fault when it filing a claim. Here is more information on what steps to take when filing a claim. You will need to contact your insurance company and the other parties insurance company as soon as possible to get the claims process started. The police report can help the insurance companies determine fault but again it's up to the insurance adjuster to when paying for the claim. Good luck and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
