Rear End Car Accident Lawyer Bucks County
If you were involved in a rear-end car accident, you should know that the driver who hit your car's rear end is almost always at fault. If you have sustained injuries and/or damage to your car, you deserve compensation. To prove your case and win compensation, it is necessary to prove that the driver who struck your vehicle was negligent and caused your injuries.
Negligence in general means that the negligent party either acted in a way a reasonably prudent person would not act or failed to act in a way a reasonably prudent person would act in a particular scenario. In many cases, a driver who rear-ends the car in front of them will attempt to shift blame to the driver of the car ahead, often claiming that they stopped suddenly. However, the fact is, it is almost always negligent for a driver to hit the car ahead of them. It is every driver's responsibility to follow and maintain a clear and safe distance ahead between their vehicle and the vehicle in front of them.
In cases where the driver striking the car in front of them claims the other driver stopped suddenly, it is usually only their perception of a sudden stop, which is typically caused by their distractions, which include activities such as:
- Making phone calls
- Talking to passengers
Doing any of these while driving can result in the driver becoming too distracted to focus on the road, leading to rear-end accidents.
When seeking compensation for a rear-end accident, it's also important to establish causation. Causation means that the Injuries and damages for which you are making your claim must be due to the accident. A common misconception about rear accidents is that they are usually minor (such as a light bump at a traffic stop) and do not result in serious injuries. In reality, rear-end accidents occur at every speed, and their effects can range from minor car damage to extensive damage both to the car and the people inside it. Furthermore, there doesn't need to be extensive damage to the vehicle for serious injuries to occur.
