Car Accident
« on: October 29, 2016, 08:15:26 PM »
I was in an accident yesterday where the guy in back of me slammed into me causing me to hit the vehicle in front of me.
Who is at fault for hitting that car me or the guy who hit me?

If the facts are not in dispute, he is. I'm not a lawyer, but that was my experience.

It wouldnt be a case if it wasnt in dispute. he said I hit car number 1 first which caused him to hit me. There was very little damage to car number 1. Mine is prob totaled. Front and back all smashed up

If you filed a police report you are good. The guy behind you is always at fault no matter how many people get hit in front the first guy to cause the pileup is at fault.

What does the police report say? That's all that matters.

Not necessarily. If the PR is clear, would they still argue?

Even were it true that you hit car 1 first, he clearly wasn't keeping his distance enough from you, so even according to his report, he's responsible for colliding into your car.

-1
As by hitting the car in front, it caused you to stop without brake lights. Now middle car is at fault.
