Who is at fault in a rear-end accident?

In a rear-end collision, the following driver is typically found at fault for the accident. In many cases, the driver in the back is discovered to have not taken the necessary precautions in providing adequate distance or be distracted while driving. That is not, however, always the case. The driver in front may have aggressively stepped on their brake without proper warning to give the following driver time to react.

Some of the most frequent causes of rear-end collisions include:

  • Panic stops
  • Reckless driving
  • Tailgating
