Question:

Can I be found liable if my car was rear-ended in an accident?

Answer:

Rear-Ended in a Car AccidentIn Florida, there is a presumption of negligence that if you were rear-ended, the person that crashed into your rear is negligent. That’s a rebuttable presumption, however; if there’s evidence to suggest that you stopped suddenly or in a place where you wouldn’t normally be stopping, then you could be found liable for causing the crash. The presumption, though, works in your favor if you are rear-ended, even if there are certain situations where you’re going to be found to be at fault as well.
