Whose Fault Is A Rear End Accident?

Anyone is considered to be at fault, or negligent, in an accident if their actions fall below the standard level of care expected from a reasonable person in the exact same situation. Some common ways that a driver can be found to be negligent is by engaging in actions such as:

  • Failing to pay attention to the road
  • Failing to stop in a reasonable amount of time
  • Failing to drive at reasonable speeds
  • Failing to follow at a safe distance
  • Failing to use turn signals
  • Failing to yield to right of way
  • Failing to maintain control over the vehicle

Drivers are expected to anticipate hazards and maintain a safe following distance that will allow them to slow down or stop before colliding with the other vehicle if necessary. However, it may not always be the fault of the driver behind the collided-into car for the accident. If the driver in front suddenly reverses, stops to make a turn without turning, has non-functioning brake lights, or does not pull over or engage hazards following a flat tire or other vehicle problem, the car behind may not be at fault.
