In any personal injury case involving a car accident, it is important to determine whether the fault lies with one party, multiple parties, or no parties. Determining who is to blame for the accident, however, is more complicated than identifying which car started the initial accident.
Oftentimes, while one car may have rear-ended another car, the front car may be at fault for not stopping in a reasonable amount of time or distance. Also, the front car may have committed some other traffic violation that ultimately led to circumstances that caused the accident.
If the fault lies with one or more parties, then recovering damages may be based on a percentage of the ability to pay of the injured parties.
