Who Pays for a Rear-end Collision?
More often than not, the driver in the rear is the person to blame for an accident. However, that is not always the case.
There are circumstances where the driver in front could be to blame, such as in a parking lot accident where a driver backing out of a spot fails to see and yield to a vehicle driving in the lane behind them.
In other cases, the accident may have been caused by a defective brake or other dangerous auto parts that prevented a driver from stopping in time. Under these circumstances, injured victims may be able to pursue compensation from the makers of the defective part.
If a dangerous condition on a poorly maintained roadway led to the crash, the government entity or contractor responsible for roadway maintenance could be to blame.
No matter the circumstances of your case, if you were hurt in a rear-end accident that was not your fault, you should speak to a knowledgeable attorney about who could be held responsible.
