Speak with a Car Accident Attorney
Rear-end car accidents are among the most common collisions in California and throughout the United States. Rear-end crashes happen when a driver strikes the rear of a vehicle driving in front of them.
This type of collision may be caused by speeding, inattentive or distracted drivers approaching slowing traffic on busy highways, near intersections, or near an accident scene.
Who is at fault for a rear-end collision?
Drivers are expected to maintain a safe distance between their car and the vehicle in front. When a rear-end accident occurs, liability may be on the rear driver or partially on both depending on the circumstances of the collision. If, for example, the driver in front makes an abrupt stop for no apparent reason or the car has malfunctioning brake lights, they may take part of the liability.
