Can an insurance company decide who is at fault when a police report has been filed?
An insurance company can assign fault regardless if a police report is filed or not. A police report is simply a report made by a neutral party at an accident scene. I believe there have been cases where insurance companies have assigned fault to one party when the opposing party was initially named at fault in a report.
