Auto accidents involving rear-end collisions are obviously quite common across Minnesota. However, they’re particularly common in Minneapolis and other urban areas. GoldenbergLaw’s accident lawyers have seen many injuries as the result of rear-end collisions.
There’s often an assumption in popular culture that a rear-end car accident is an easy case – the driver who collided with the back of the other car is automatically at fault. But this isn’t always the case. While rear-end collisions are usually judged to be the fault of the driver who rear-ended the other vehicle, there’s nothing automatic about that determination.
Liability in these cases will be determined in the same way it is determined in any other accident – by the specific details and unique circumstances of the accident. Our accident lawyers will make no assumptions when they investigate your rear-end collision and will follow the evidence wherever it leads.
Heavily trafficked urban areas like Minneapolis see a high number of rear-end collisions. A lot of cars are driving in tight quarters and there are a number of distractions that can reduce a driver’s reaction time just enough to make it impossible to brake in time.
