Rear Auto Accidents

Rear Auto Accidents

In order to determine who is at fault in an auto accident, law
enforcement officers use several factors. They may, for example, determine that
a specific driver was not paying attention or was talking on their cell phone
when it is illegal to do so. In some auto accidents, fault is distributed
between drivers at a percentage. In most rear-end auto accidents, the driver
that hits the car in front of them is at fault, regardless of other
circumstances.

 

Drivers that hit the car in front of them in auto accidents are at
fault because it is their responsibility to have enough room to stop before
hitting the car in front of them. In most cases, auto accidents that involved a
car hitting the car in front of it, the car in the back is attributed 100
percent fault.

 

Leaving the Scene of an Accident

Leaving the Scene of an Accident

One of the most seriously penalized vehicular accident situations is in the case of a hit and run. Leaving the scene of an accident is an offense punishable by law, though the actual penalties incurred by a hit and run will vary from state to state in the United States. Furthermore, the penalties that are associated with a hit and run accident will also vary depending on the circumstances of the accident.
Examples of hit and run situations include leaving the scene of an accident caused by drinking and driving, or leaving the scene of an accident in which a person was seriously injured or killed. However, common penalties that are associated with a hit and run accident include: serious fines, suspension of a driver’s license, civil action by victims of the hit and run accident, and imprisonment in more severe cases.
