What does it mean to be at fault?
Under Massachusetts law, you are considered to be “at fault” when your behavior at the time of the collision constitutes more than 50% of the reason for the accident.
Who determines who is at fault in a car accident?
Ultimately, the determination of who is at fault in a motor vehicle accident rests with the court in your jurisdiction.
Can anything hurt my chances of collecting, even if the accident is entirely the other person’s fault?
You should always wear your seatbelt. If you do not, insurance companies may use your failure to wear one as evidence of your own negligence and carelessness. This could hurt your chances of collecting, even if someone has rear-ended you.
