Determining fault in a roundabout accident

We interviewed a traffic investigator at the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office to learn how law enforcement determines fault in a roundabout car crash. What did we find? Most crashes in roundabouts are the result of one driver failing to yield the right-of-way to a vehicle already in the roundabout. When that happens, the driver that did not yield would be put at fault.

To read more about how police officers determine fault, and for more tips on roundabout safety, please take a look at our Michigan Auto Law blog post, “Who's At Fault in a Roundabout Accident?

This information is important for drivers who have to pay their deductible if they’re at fault for a crash, or those who do not carry broad collision coverage and may qualify for reimbursement from the at-fault driver’s insurance company.

Vehicle damage reimbursement

While roundabouts promote better safety with less injury and fatality accidents, the majority of car crashes at these intersections result in vehicle damage. With that in mind, Michigan drivers who do not carry broad collision coverage on their insurance can get reimbursed for a portion of their deductible if they were 50% or less at fault.

This vehicle damage reimbursement is called a mini tort claim and can be submitted to the at-fault driver’s insurance company. To learn more about this process, and how to submit a claim, please visit our mini tort page.

In the meantime, we encourage all drivers to slow down when approaching a roundabout and yield to oncoming traffic. If you’re involved in an accident, always make sure to contact the police, document the damage, get the other driver’s information and ask witnesses to provide a statement.
