When more than one person is responsible for an auto accident, the jury at trial will allocate fault among all of the at-fault parties. Because of the joint and several liability law in Washington State, if one at-fault party doesn't have enough insurance coverage to pay their part of your damages, the other at-fault party will be required to use their insurance coverage to cover the rest of your damages. Your personal injury attorney needs to establish that you are not at fault to maximize your recovery.
