Who pays in a no citation car accident?

-The insurance company for the first car that spun out of control will not be liable to either of the cars involved in the accident since the first car didn't directly cause the accident. -If your insurance has full coverage, then it will pay for the damage to your car and perhaps for the other car that collided with you -The insurance co. of the car that collided with you may not be liable to pay for damages to you since it was not the fault of their driver that caused damage to your car. -It would be best to speak to your insurance company's agent and explain the entire incident and see what are your best options. No citation means undetermined fault. In this case it is up to the Insurance co. to handle the issue. Most of the times and depending on what kind of an accident it was, the claim may end up in court, then it is up to the Judge to decide.
