Los Angeles Rear-End Collision Lawyer
About Rear-End Car Accidents
Rear-end collisions are one of the most common types of car accidents. In a rear-end collision, the front end of one vehicle collides with the back of another. The most common cause of rear-end collisions is driver distraction. Talking on the phone or texting while driving, talking to a passenger, adjusting the radio, applying make-up, eating or drinking are all potential actions that may cause a driver to miss the fact that the car in front of him or her has stopped or slowed down.

Rear-End Crashes: Who is Responsible?
Generally speaking, the at-fault driver in a rear-end collision is presumed to be the driver of the second car that collided with the back of the first vehicle. If you were involved in a rear-end crash and you were driving the second car, however, this does not necessarily mean that you should be held responsible. For example, what if the other driver cut you off unexpectedly and then slammed on the brakes? What if your brakes or steering failed when you needed them most? In situations such as this, your attorney can work to prove that the other driver caused the accident or that the manufacturer of a faulty auto part should be held liable for causing the accident and your injuries. If another party is held responsible, you will have the opportunity to recover financial compensation for your injuries - and this can help you rebuild your life and move on.
