If I rear-ended someone, is it my fault?
In most rear-ended accidents, the rear driver is at fault, but that isn't always the case. Sometimes the lead driver can also be found liable. The lead driver may be at fault if he or she was negligent or driving recklessly such as drunk driving, reversing into a car, driving with broken brake lights, road rage, or intentionally trying to get hit. The driver who is at fault for causing the accident may be held liable for damages in a personal injury claim.
Who's at fault in a 3-car accident?
In a 3-way car accident, the motorist who caused the accident is mostly at fault but if the other two drivers also contributed to the accident, then they are also liable. It can be a challenge to determine who was negligent in a multiple-car accident, and just as difficult to collect a fair settlement for any injuries you have suffered. The best way to determine fault is to reach out to an experienced car accident lawyer who can argue on your behalf. Based on evidence gathered by your lawyer, the insurance company can determine fault and award compensation for your injuries.
What happens if I was at fault for the car accident?
California is a fault state. If you were at fault in a car accident, your insurance company is responsible for damages of those injured in the accident. The other driver will be able to pursue a personal injury claim against your insurance company for compensation. In most cases, your insurance will settle with the injured party and you won't need to go to trial. However, if the damages exceed your policy limits, the injured driver may take you to court and you may be liable for the additional costs. This only happens in serious accidents that resulted in severe injuries or death. In this case, it's best to consult with a car accident lawyer for help.
