Phoenix Injury Lawyer Explains How Liability is Determined

Video Transcript:

Rob Rosenthal:

Do you know how fault is determined after an auto collision in Arizona? We ask Arizona attorney Tim Tonkin for this AskTheLawyers™ Quick Question.

Tim Tonkin:

Fault is determined at different points in time by different entities, but ultimately if it's something that we need to push on and go to litigation with, it's something that we’ll prove for you. There is comparative fault as well, and so not all accidents have 100% fault. If these claims or cases end up in front of a jury, a jury is permitted to apportion fault based on percentages. So the jury will be giving a verdict form of, here’s Person A and Person B, determine what percentage of fault they have. They could go 50/50, 90/10, any numerical breakdown that adds up to 100% between those two entities.
