Determining Fault In Rear-End Collisions

All of us learn before getting a driver’s license that you must leave adequate space for the car ahead. Because of this important safety principle, the driver of a car that rear-ends the vehicle ahead is presumed to have acted negligently. Ordinarily, that driver will be at fault for the crash and liable for any resulting damages.

However, the rear vehicle driver may be able to show another nonnegligent cause of the collision. These factors can complicate any division of responsibility for the collision and make apportioning blame difficult. If the driver of the rear vehicle can demonstrate that he or she was driving carefully at the time of the crash and the collision was caused by some other factor, then that driver may be able to recover for his or her own injuries.
