Have You Been Involved in a Rear-End Collision?
In California, a legal doctrine called “rear-end collision presumption,” is applied. The doctrine presumes fault on the driver of the rear vehicle in a rear-end accident. This presumption means that the operator of the rear vehicle is assumed to be at fault for the accident unless proved otherwise. However, it is important to note that the doctrine is not absolute. Laws vary, and specific circumstances, evidence, and the judgment of the courts can influence the application of fault in an accident.
