Establishing Fault for Rear-End Accidents
Every licensed driver is obligated to follow other vehicles at a safe distance, just in case the driver ahead unexpectedly slows down or comes to a stop. In almost all cases, the driver of the vehicle which rear-ends the leading car is considered partially negligent. The injured party must prove that a duty of care exists, then you must prove the other driver breached their duty, such as failing to follow at a safe distance, and that the breach caused the accident.
Common causes of rear-end accident include the following:
- Speeding or traveling too fast
- Not paying attention or distracted driving
- Failing to leave a sufficient amount of space
- Poor weather conditions
