Who is at Fault in a Rear-End Accident? 

Every rear-end accident is unique, and so each case requires looking over every individual variable that may have caused the impact. Whether or not a rear-end victim was in the front or rear vehicle at the time of an accident does not automatically indicate who is at fault.

While the driver that causes the rear impact is commonly found to be the one at fault in court, the lead driver can also take some of the blame. For example, if a driver’s brake lights are out, or fails to signal while changing lanes or merging onto a highway, that driver will likely bear some of the responsibility should an accident occur. 

No matter the case, each party may be found to be at fault for the accident. New York is a “no-fault” state, meaning that all those involved in a rear-end accident may get reimbursed for damages. In court, these amounts are determined based on the amount of negligence that a judge finds each party contributed to causing the accident. 

Rear-end lawyers specialize in representing each client’s case in a way that minimizes the amount of negligence they are found guilty of, and therefore maximizing their settlement.

New York State Rear-End Impact Statistics 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), rear end car crashes account for 28% of all accidents in the US, making them among the most common types of accidents in the country.

While this type of collision can cause serious injury, rear-end accidents account for only 6% of all traffic fatalities. Although not typically fatal, they can cause severe and chronic injuries that require lots of time away from work, and lots of money to cover recovery costs. This can create great financial strain for victims and their families.
