Who is liable in a rear-end collision?
Millions of people use vehicles daily in the United States to commute. Unfortunately, this means accidents can happen anytime and anywhere, even if a driver is careful. According to studies, rear-end collisions account for 29% of all vehicle crashes in the US, making them the most common type of collisions. In rear-end accidents, most people automatically assume that the driver in the rear car (the second car) is liable. However, this isn’t always the case.
