There are a few alternatives to the at-fault system in Washington State. One option is to move to a no-fault system, where each driver's insurance company pays for their own damages, regardless of who is at fault. This system can be more expensive for drivers, and can lead to delays in getting compensation. Another option is to move to a modified comparative fault system. This system would still require drivers to prove that they were not at fault for an accident, but would reduce the amount they could recover if they were found to be partially at fault.
