Re: Rear-End Accident - Fault Attribution

I would say lawyer up but unfortunately for you in front of the Swiss judicial system there are Swiss and everybody else.
I have witnessed a case of police bias once.

I drove my (now-ex) father-in-law (German) to pick up a car somewhere near Liestal. Stupidly he put the plates from his AR-registered van on the car without first officially declaring it.

He drove only a kilometre before being broadsided by a too-old-to-be-driving local granny who totally missed a stop sign.

The police attended and treated the old lady like a victim, and my ex-FIL like a criminal at the scene...drug/breath test, the works. He was rightly fined for the compliance/insurance breaches, but he did receive insurance (not-at-fault party) for the collision itself. (clearly open and shut, fortunately).
