About Rear End Auto Accidents
Anyone with a driver’s license probably remembers the “three-second rule” that is taught during driver’s training. In order to maintain a safe distance between your car and the car in front of you while in motion, pick out a landmark on the side of the road. You should be able to count to three (using the “Mississippi” method; e.g., “one-Mississippi, two-Mississippi…”) from the time the car in front of you passes the landmark and the time that your car passes the landmark. If you cannot count to three during this time, you are following too closely and need to slow down.
Regardless of the method used to measure the distance, all cars are required to maintain a safe distance from the cars in front of them. A car should always be able to brake safely and avoid a collision in the instance that the car in front of it slows down or stops. While there are rare exceptions, in most cases of rear end collisions, it is the driver of the rear car that is mostly or primarily at fault.
Nevertheless, it is incumbent upon the victim’s attorney to prove that the driver of the rear car was negligent and therefore liable for the victim’s injuries. The fact that the accident occurred is not, in itself, proof of negligence. That’s where our White Plains car accident attorneys come into play. Our attorneys know how to present the strongest, most compelling cases possible and have an impressive track record of successful verdicts and settlements. They can collect evidence, use expert testimony, and construct an airtight argument to prove negligence on the part of the defendant, aggressively fighting for your right to compensation.
