Who’s At Fault In A Rear-End Accident?

About Rear-End Car Accidents and Injuries

Rear-end car collisions happen every day and are one of the most common types of auto collisions. A rear-end collision occurs when the back end of one vehicle is hit by the front end of another. Rear-end collisions are typically caused by driver distraction.

Driver distraction involves anything that takes away the undivided attention of the driver from the road.


Who is at fault in a rear-end accident?

Typically, the person responsible for a rear-end collision is the driver of the car who’s front end collided with the back end of the other vehicle. However, in the case that it was your front end that collided with the back end of the other vehicle, it does not immediately mean that you were at fault. There may be other factors that may be responsible. A possibility is that the other driver cut into your lane unexpectedly and then slammed on the brakes. Another is that your brakes or steering failed when you needed to apply them.
