Who is Liable in Tailgating Accidents?

Finding the cause of a crash is central to an injury claim. In many cases, rear-end accidents result from a distracted driver. In other instances, these crashes can stem from careless or intoxicated drivers. There is a common belief that the following driver is always at fault in a rear-end crash.

Motorists owe a duty to other drivers to watch the road in front of them. Because of this duty, the following driver is ultimately responsible for avoiding collisions with hazards in front of them. When these drivers fail to keep a reasonable distance or become distracted, they can cause severe crashes. In these situations, the following motorist could face liability for the injuries of the other driver.

Still, with the right legal counsel, obtaining a positive outcome could be possible.
