Thinking About “Fault” in a Rear-End Accident
Why are rear-end accident cases tricky? There is a presumption in rear-end collision cases that isn’t applied to other car accident scenarios. Generally speaking, when drivers are operating their vehicles, they are required to keep enough space between their vehicle and the vehicle in front of them that they can safely stop in the event that the lead vehicle stops suddenly. As a result, the motorist operating the rear vehicle in a rear-end collision is generally presumed to be either at-fault or “the most” at-fault for such a crash.
With that said, not all rear-end collisions occur because the follow vehicle’s motorist was negligent. Any number of factors, from ill-maintained roads to bad weather, aggressive tactics by the lead vehicle’s motorist, etc. can influence the determination of fault in a rear-end accident. As a result, it is critical to have an experienced attorney investigate the unique circumstances of your accident to better ensure that you are able to obtain any and all compensation to which you’re entitled.
Regardless of whether you were operating the lead vehicle or the follow vehicle, you should have a lawyer advocating for your interests who has the experience to build the strongest possible case on your behalf. Know that we will treat both you and your case with the respect, focus, and determination that you’re entitled to as an accident victim.

Rear-end accidents are not always straightforward. Yes, the majority of rear-end accidents occur because the vehicle that is hit was being followed too closely by the motorist driving the vehicle that collided with the tail-end of the vehicle in front of it. In short, most of the time, it is the driver who slams their vehicle into the car in front of them who is at-fault. However, this is not always the case. It is therefore important not to make assumptions about the fault issues in your case before connecting with the experienced Florida legal team at Jeff Murphy Law and exploring your legal options. Making assumptions now could cost you time, energy, and compensation at the end of the day. If you haven’t yet called our office to schedule a consultation, please do so now.
