Rear-end accidents are one of the most common types of motor vehicle accidents. Although these accidents can range from a simple fender-bender to a serious crash that leaves people with catastrophic or life-threatening injuries, the risk of catastrophic harm or death only goes up when a rear-end accident involves a commercial truck.

The law requires all drivers to leave enough distance to the vehicle in front to be able to safely slow down and come to a stop, given the driver’s speed and the road conditions. As a result, there is often a rebuttable presumption that the vehicle in the rear in a rear-end accident failed to leave enough room to safely slow down or stop and thus was responsible for the accident.
Potentially yes. Although by being the vehicle in the rear there is a rebuttable presumption you were at fault for the crash, there may be facts and circumstances that show that another party bears some or all the fault for the accident. Under New Jersey’s comparative negligence law, you may pursue a claim so long as your share of fault for an accident and your injuries do not exceed the share of fault or the party you are seeking compensation from. Our attorneys can review your case to advise you as to whether you may have a viable claim.
