Insurance companies at the time of an accident will apply a % of who’s at fault for the accident based upon many factors, including a police report. Sometimes the insurance companies will split the fault of the accident even when it shouldn’t be based upon how they pay the claim. As a policyholder you need to make sure that the insurance company marks the claim appropriately at the time of payout.
