At-Fault (Tort Liability)

At-Fault (Tort Liability)

In tort states, drivers who are deemed “at-fault” for an accident are responsible for covering the damages, although fault is not always fully imposed on one driver (e.g., if a driver is found 60% at fault, they are responsible for 60% of the costs). The majority of states use some form of tort law.
