Liability In Rear End Car Accidents
Drivers have a responsibility to pay attention to the road ahead of them and maintain a safe distance with the vehicle in front. Generally speaking, there is a presumption of negligence when one driver rear ends another vehicle. It doesn’t matter whether the vehicle in front abruptly slowed down. Drivers that rear end other vehicles are typically going too fast, following too closely or are otherwise distracted.
The family of a victim that died in a car accident is able to seek justice under California’s wrongful death law CCP 377.60. A wrongful death attorney can evaluate the specific facts of your case and let your know if you have a claim that can be pursued. Victim’s that were injured are also able to recover damages. It’s important that evidence is preserved after an accident for the sake of those affected.
