Who is at fault in rear-end accidents?
Typically, in rear-end collisions, the rear vehicle is to blame and assumes
liability to cover the damages. However, there are certain scenarios where
the front driver is partially at fault. For example, if the vehicle in
front of you stops abruptly for no reason and without any warning, then
they could be to blame. There are also cases where a vehicle is at a complete
stop at a traffic light and another vehicle hits them from behind causing
them to hit the person in front of them.
