If you have been hit from behind in a car accident, then it is usually the fault of the driver in the car behind you. However, the car in front can be found to be at fault if the driver braked suddenly for no other reason than to cause an accident and then claim personal injury compensation, or to claim for damages from the motorist behind who crashed into his or her rear end. There is an acknowledged scenario in which two cars are involved, with their drivers’ having set up an apparent accident that was averted. This is how it goes: a car swerves out of a junction or from a parked position in front of an accomplice’s car; the accomplice has to perform an emergency stop and the car behind crashes into the second car. The driver whose car was crashed into claims he or she suffered a whiplash injury and claims compensation. This trick is now well-known to the police and insurance companies, and generally if you were hit from behind in a car accident then it can be proven that the driver of the car behind was negligent in some way; perhaps he or she was not concentrating or was driving too fast to stop, or driving too close to the car in front for safety.
Hit from behind in a car accident
You may have been hit from behind in a car accident which caused you to rear end another vehicle. This could mean that the driver of the car in front of you would wish to make a personal injury compensation claim against you, or at least claim off your insurer for damage to his or her vehicle. If you suffered an injury in such an accident then you may be able to claim personal injury compensation, but you would probably need the services of an accident solicitor to do so.
