What Happens If You Do Not Agree With Fault After a Car Accident?

After a car accident has happened, the insurance companies will likely make a decision about the fault. Fault essentially means that the insurance company is deciding who caused the accident and how the accident happened. Here at McCluskey Insurance Services LLC, serving the greater Cincinnati, OH area, one of the questions that we are frequently asked is what happens if you do not agree with fault after a car accident.

Here are the options available to you if you do not agree with the fault:

Disputing the Information With the Insurance Company

If you do not agree with the findings of an insurance company, you can file a written appeal. In the appeal, you can state why you disagree with the insurance company about who was at fault for the accident. It is important to do this as quickly as possible after finding out the insurance company listed you as at fault for the accident. 

Providing Proof of Fault

Along with filing a written appeal, you will also have the opportunity to present new evidence that can be crucial to proving you were not at fault for the accident. This may include obtaining camera footage, submitting new photos of the accident scene, or obtaining witness statements that show you are not at fault after an accident has happened.
