Phoenix Rear End Accident Attorney

Rear end collisions are extremely common. A rear end collision is when one vehicle crashes into the back of another vehicle. In Arizona, most of the time the driver that rear ended another vehicle is at fault, but there are some scenarios where the car that was hit can be liable for the accident. If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed due to a rear end car accident, then it is important to reach out to an experienced car accident attorney to help navigate the complexities of the case. 

How Do Rear-End Collisions Occur?

Car accidents occur very often in Arizona and across the country. A very common form of car crash is a rear end accident. These accidents can cause serious injuries as well as fatal injuries. Some of the most common causes of a rear end collision is:

  • Speeding
  • Improper Lane Changing & Merging
  • Tailgating
  • Distracted Driving

Who Is At Fault After A Rear End Collision?

Drivers are expected to leave a safe distance between themselves and the vehicle in front of them. The general rule is to leave about 2 seconds between you and the vehicle in front of you in the city and 4 seconds on the highway. In Arizona, the driver that hit the other vehicle from behind is typically at fault. Because the lead driver did nothing wrong, the other driver would be liable for damages and injuries. The lead driver can be at fault though if:

  • The lead driver made a turn from outside the turn lane
  • Made a stop to make a turn but then did not turn as expected
  • Stopped randomly for no reason
  • Failed to signal a turn or lane change
  • Did not use hazard lights when their car was broken down
  • Suddenly put the car in reverse
