Long Island Personal Injury Lawyers: Rear-end Crash— Who’s to Blame?


“Conventional wisdom dictates that when it comes to rear-end collisions, the tailing driver is always to blame. This is mainly due to the assured clear distance ahead (ACDA) rule that requires a driver to maintain a clear distance with the vehicle in front of him to avoid a crash should the said vehicle comes to a halt. This is why he is expected to come up with a reasonable excuse why he rear-ended the front vehicle.

Although most people believe that the analysis of a rear-end collision ends there, there are many ways this can be challenged, which often results in shared fault. Here are some excuses that have been accepted by courts.”
