Rear-End Car Accidents in Kansas City
Call Now for a Free Consultation!
A rear-end car accident is when the front of one vehicle crashes into the rear of another car or truck. In many instances, rear-end accidents are considered to be the fault of the driver that collided with the front car since it is presumed they did not leave enough room between vehicles or were distracted in the operation of their vehicle that they did not notice the car in front of them braking.
Rear-end accidents are some of the most common car accidents in the Kansas City area and contribute to the significant injury of those involved in the accidents. If you or a loved one have been harmed or experienced property damage in connection with any car accident, DiPasquale Moore can advocate on your behalf. Our attorneys are dedicated to our clients and fighting for the rights of those harmed.
Whose Fault Is A Rear-End Accident?
Anyone is considered to be at fault, or negligent, in an accident if their actions fall below the standard level of care expected from a reasonable person in the same situation.
Common ways that a driver can be found to be negligent is by engaging in actions such as:
- Failing to pay attention to the road
- Failing to stop in a reasonable amount of time
- Failing to drive at moderate speeds
- Failing to follow at a safe distance
- Failing to use turn signals
- Failing to yield right of way
- Failing to maintain control over the vehicle
Drivers are expected to anticipate hazards and keep a safe following distance that will allow them to slow down or stop before colliding with the other vehicle if necessary. However, it may not always be the fault of the driver behind the collided-into car for the accident. If the driver in front suddenly reverses, stops to make a turn without turning, has non-functioning brake lights, or does not pull over or engage hazards following a flat tire or other vehicle problem, the car behind may not be at fault.
