This one is really tricky. Typically it is up to the person driving to maintain control of the vehicle but every situation is different. An insurance adjuster will be the one who determines fault. They can find both parties at fault in the situation as well. If found at fault, it may impact the insurance rates for up to five years. Here is more information on what to expect when filing a claim. Good luck and if you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
