Determining fault and causation of a crash is what we do. Believe or not after 25 years of investigating, reviewing and attending traffic crash investigation courses; law enforcement officers can make mistakes especially when making determinations of who is at fault/causation without conducting a thorough investigation.
Most law enforcement officers arrive at a crash scene; take names, insurance and vehicle information and provide the parties involved with a driver exchange of information as provided by law. Traditionally; the crash is reported and often not investigated.
Insurance companies look at a crash report that was prepared by a law enforcement officer and see (1) who was issued a citation and (2) who was determined to be at fault. Based on that information an insurance adjuster decides which driver has the major responsibility of causation.
