Who is at Fault in a Rear-End Accident?

Rear End Accidents are all about proving negligence. Did the other driver see you slowing down, did you break to abruptly, was the other driver texting and driving? There are a multitude of factors that can lead to a rear-end accident, but the courts determine fault in a rear-end accident case by determining negligence. But how is negligence determined when most individuals only have .75-1.5 second(s) to react to a vehicle breaking in front of them? The answer is speed and distance. When a rear end accident happens, determining how much space was available between the two vehicles is crucial. If both vehicles were traveling at least 60mph, then they were covering a distance of 132 feet every second. In terms of highway speed and distance, this is a minute amount. If the rear driver was too close to the lead vehicle, then the rear driver will not be able to react in time and will be mostly liable for a rear-end accident.

Right of Way is also very important in determining fault in a rear-end accident claim. If a vehicle is merging onto the street or highway and strikes a vehicle from behind that was already traveling on that road, then the vehicle that merged onto the road is more likely to be liable for the rear-end accident. For more information about car accident statistics, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration provides great information.

How can I avoid a Rear-End Accident?

There are several methods you can use to avoid rear-end accidents, both as the forward and rear car. Our Rear-End Collision Lawyers advising following or using these methods:

  • Drive a Car that has Auto Breaking – Auto breaking is an incredible technology. If you are distracted by something happening within the car, or outside of it, and your attention is momentarily diverted from the road, this technology feature can automatically break your car in the event of an impending collision. As this feature continues to be fine-tuned, more car manufacturers are making this feature a standard across the industry.
  • Maintain At Least a 3 second Gap – The Majority of rear-end collisions happen because the rear driver doesn’t have an adequate amount of time to react to a change in speed from the leading vehicle. Maintaining at least a 3-second gap between you and the vehicle in front of you will allow you the time you need to appropriately respond to any change in speed or direction.
  • Ensure that your Brake Lights are Working – Brake Lights are integral to letting the vehicle behind you know that you are slowing or changing direction. If your brake lights aren’t operational, and an accident ensues, you can be held liable for the accident, maybe even fully liable.
  • Slow Down During Bad Road Conditions – If road conditions are bad, such as heavy rain, thick snow, or ice, slow down! It is more important to arrive alive and a little late, than not arrive at all. Use common sense when driving, and if road conditions aren’t ideal, slow down.
