Car And Truck Crashes From Behind

Common wisdom regarding rear-end collisions tells us that it is nearly always the fault of the car coming from behind. Why? Because we assume that every motorist should keep a safe following distance and be prepared to stop and prevent collisions from behind.

However, for every rule there are exceptions. This is true for rear-end collisions, however logical it may seem to say that the car coming from behind caused the crash. In fact, there are often mitigating factors such as other drivers’ traffic violations, unpredictable road conditions and unavoidable crashes in places such as tunnels, bridges or other roadways lacking shoulders.

If you were hit from behind and in turn hit the car in front of you, you may be considered at fault in the second collision even though the first collision forced you into it.

Figuring out who was at fault and how to obtain maximum compensation for your injuries is not a job for amateurs. It is important to work with an experienced, established personal injury lawyer with a strong track record. At Glenda Mitchell Law Firm, you will find such an attorney ready to fight for your right to fair compensation.
