The insurance companies determine fault when filing a claim. You will need to contact your insurance company and the other party's 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. Check out our guide to filing claims to learn more about what to expect from the filing process. Good luck and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
