Indiana is a fault state, where the driver found liable for the auto accident should use his insurance to cover the damages of another person.
Traffic, as well as negligence laws, can be considered suing a person involved in the auto accident.
Determining the liability:
In Indiana auto accident laws, to determine the liability in an auto accident, a comparative fault act is used, which calculates the fault of the driver on a 0 to 100 percent point scale.
To do so, the courts obtain evidence from the police and witnesses at the scene of the accident.
This percentage, if it exceeds 50, determines the amount that must be paid by the driver to cover the property damages and for the personal injuries.
