If you are hit from behind, can you be found liable?

If an individual’s car is hit from behind, that individual typically will not be liable for the accident. These drivers are typically not liable because the other driver is expected to keep a safe enough distance from the car in front.

By keeping a safe distance, the driver behind should be able to stop in almost any circumstance. However, there are certain exceptions to this rule when a rear-ended driver may be at least partially liable.

If you have been injured in a car accident, contact the Green Bay car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874.
