All drivers are required to keep their vehicles under their control at all times. If they simply did that, there would be no rear-end collisions, right? Indeed, there would be no traffic accidents at all.
Determining who was at fault in a rear-end collision may seem straightforward, but it's often more complex than you might expect. Yes, it's probably true that the driver of the striking car failed to stop in time, but that is not the only fact to consider. Often enough, the car in front stopped short, leaving no opportunity for the car behind to stop. In other cases, the striking car would have stopped but was itself struck by another vehicle. In a few cases, the car in front may have backed into the car behind.
Were you injured in a rear-end car accident and are afraid you may not be eligible for compensation because you may have been partially at fault? You may still qualify! Contact me now for a free evaluation of your case.
I am attorney Alvin de Levie, and I have handled many rear-end collisions over the course of my career as a personal injury lawyer. I understand that every case is different, and I will work with you to understand the accident from your point of view. Working with accident reconstructionists and other experts, I can then work to determine the true cause of the crash.
If you were partially at fault, you may still be eligible for compensation under Pennsylvania law. Our state uses a comparative fault rule, which means you can seek compensation as long as you were less at fault than the other driver.
