Liability In Rear-End Collisions
Drivers are supposed to operate their vehicles according to the prevailing conditions in order to avoid collisions. According to California Vehicle Code 22350, “No person shall drive a vehicle upon a highway at a speed greater than is reasonable or prudent having due regard for weather, visibility, the traffic on, and the surface and width of, the highway, and in no event at a speed which endangers the safety of persons or property.”
There is simply no excuse for one driver to rear-end another. A good driver should maintain a safe distance with the vehicle ahead of them. Drivers that rear-end other vehicles are typically speeding or not paying attention to what’s ahead of them. Any person that is injured in a pedestrian accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim.
