Who Is At Fault In A Rear-End Collision?
Many people have heard that the tailing driver is always at fault for a rear-end collision. This can be true even if the front vehicle stops suddenly or unexpectedly. All drivers are responsible for leaving enough distance between them and the car ahead to have time to stop, no matter the unanticipated circumstance.
While most rear-end collisions are the fault of the person following, this is not always the case. For example, a driver who reverses suddenly would likely be responsible if the car behind rear-ended them. Similarly, someone whose brake lights are out would probably be liable for a rear-end collision caused by another driver who could not tell the vehicle in front had slowed or stopped.
