Who’s at Fault in a Rear-End Collision?

Posted on June 30, 2022 in

Being in a car accident can lead to significant vehicle repairs, medical bills, lost wages, and even lost earnings potential in the long run. When someone or something else was the cause of your car accident, you could be entitled to compensation for all the costs and damages associated with your accident from the party that caused it. The evidence will determine who is liable, and sometimes the cause of a rear-end collision is not the driver who hit the other car. 

Rear-end collisions make up over 43% of all multi-car collisions in Arizona, according to the 2019 Arizona Crash Facts Report issued by the AZ Department of Transportation. You might think that a driver who rear-ends someone is automatically to blame, but that is not necessary the case. 

The unique facts and circumstances of each accident will determine who is at fault, and who is entitled to collect compensation for their damages. An experienced Phoenix car accident lawyer from Stone Rose Law is standing by to review the facts of your accident to help on your case. 

Your Phoenix Car Accident Lawyer Negotiates the Best Outcome on Your Case

To collect damages for your car accident you’ll have to first prove who was at fault, then proceed through a complex claims process to prove then collect your damages. 

Rear-end collisions often happen when the driver in front is negligent, including:

  • Sudden stopping or “stopping short” 
  • Changing lanes and other aggressive driving 
  • Driving a vehicle without working brake lights 
  • The driver in front suddenly reverses 

Common injuries from rear-end collisions you could be entitled to compensation on include: 

  • Whiplash 
  • Traumatic brain injury 
  • Neck and back injury 
  • Broken and/or fractured bones
