How can you determine fault and liability in a car accident?

Automobiles are heavily relied on in today's society. Most residents in Pennsylvania are likely to have at least one personal vehicle. While motor vehicles are reliable and relatively safe mode of transportation, they are also the cause of numerous dangers and risks on the roadway. Even when a motorist is traveling safely and by the rules of the road, this does not protect them from the negligence or recklessness of others on the road.
