How is fault determined in a car, truck, motorcycle, or bicycle accident?

In a car, truck, motorcycle, or bicycle accident, determining who is at fault is a matter of deciding who was negligent in causing the accident. The following factors are taken into consideration to determine who was at fault in an auto accident:

Did the driver violate the traffic rules?
Was the driver (or pedestrian or cyclist) not reasonably careful?
Did the driver’s conduct cause actual injury or damage to someone?
