How do insurance companies decide who is at fault UK?
The insurer who pays for any third party costs, as well as their own policyholder’s repairs would be treated as an at fault claim. If you are considered at fault for an accident or loss, your insurer won’t be able to recover their costs if they’ve paid for your repairs.
Why do insurance companies tell you not to admit fault?
Admitting Fault Can Hurt Your Personal Injury Claim
This means you could still collect compensation even if you were responsible for the accident to a certain degree. However, whatever percentage of fault is assigned to you may be deducted from your damages.
Can you tell how fast a car was going by the damage?
The severity of the damage can tell investigators important information. A minor dent may indicate that a driver was traveling at low speed or that the driver had nearly enough time to finish braking. Severe damage can tell investigators how fast a vehicle may have been traveling or how hard the car was hit.
