https://www.mallardlawfirm.com/video/who-decides-who-was-at-fault-in-my-florida-auto-accident-.cfm The simple answer to this question is the jury. If your case goes to trial, the jury will decide whether you or the other driver were at fault for the accident, or if the two of you were in some combination were responsible for the accident.
There are also citations that are given at accident scenes. Although you may be surprised to hear they are not generally admissible in a court of law in a civil litigation matter. Therefore, just because you received a citation does not mean that you cannot make a claim for an auto accident injury case.
As you can see there are numerous answers to this question and you need to seek the advice of an attorney to answers questions as to your specific case.
