Motor vehicle accident law is a combination of traffic and personal injury law. After an accident, a police officer will take pictures, interview witnesses, and analyze an accident scene to help him piece together what happened. The people involved in the accident will then file claims with their auto insurance companies, who will review the police report and make an initial determination of fault. Depending on your state's auto insurance laws and who is at fault, the auto insurance company may reimburse some of the cost of repairing or replacing the vehicle.
