Indiana traffic laws have always stated that if either party did anything wrong, then both are automatically equally at fault. The rationale is that if one party or the other had been completely free of any contributing factors, then the accident *may* never have occured in the first place.

Because of this, Indiana has a large number of lawsuits between insurance companies looking to get out of paying claims due to situations such as this one.
