Injured In A Rear-End Car Accident in NYC? We Can Help.
Drivers have a duty to other drivers to keep a watch out for other vehicles and to keep a safe following distance. When a driver drops something on the floor of the car or turns to speak to a passenger, and in the process takes eyes off the road in front while driving, conditions are ripe for a rear-end car accident if a car in front stops to turn or is slowed down by traffic.
When a rear-end collision occurs, there is normally a presumption that the driver of the vehicle behind the other was at fault. This presumption can sometimes be overcome through careful investigation and documentation of extenuating circumstances. Perhaps the at-fault driver was blinded by sunlight, suffered a medical emergency behind the wheel, or was caught in the middle in a multiple-car crash. In most cases, however, the presumption of the fault of the driver behind holds true. A distracted driver or a careless driver is convincingly liable for damages after this type of crash. Tailgating is another risk factor that points to the driver behind as clearly at fault.
