Atlanta Personal Injury Attorney – Rear-end Collisions – Who Is Responsible for the Damages?

In the case of a rear-end wreck, most people are aware that the driver who does the rear-ending or hits another vehicle from behind will likely be found at fault. So, if you have been rear-ended, most likely the other driver is at fault, and they will be responsible for any damages or injuries that resulted from the wreck.

It is possible that the driver who does the rear-ending can bring a claim against a third driver in an incident of a rear-end collision, for instance the vehicle that may have caused you to stop short.

With this being said, it’s important to follow the rule of leaving enough space between you and the vehicle traveling in front of you. This will ensure that you have enough time to stop quickly, i.e. in the event of stand-still traffic.

In the case of comparative negligence, i.e. the driver that was rear-ended was in some way to blame, for example, neglecting to fix brake lights that are not working properly. In cases such as this, the driver that was rear-ended may find that compensation for the damages and injuries may be reduced.

As is the case with most auto accidents, navigating a claim may prove challenging. An experienced Atlanta car wreck lawyer | Savannah car accident attorney will help you explore your legal options and help you obtain any compensation to which you are entitled.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.
