Tailgating Accidents

Tailgating Accidents

Friday, April 19th, 2013

One of the first things new drivers are taught is the importance of leaving plenty of room for the car in front of you. Failure to do so can lead to a situation where a sudden stop results in an accident. If you’ve been victimized in a rear-end collision with a driver who was following too closely behind you, our Kingston-area auto accident attorney can help.

In New York state, as in most of the US, a rear-end collision is presumed to be the fault of the driver who collided with the car in front. There are very specific circumstances in which the trailing driver is at fault, but those are rare.

Sometimes you have to stop suddenly, often in order to protect your safety. Our accident attorney understands and can prove that the point of laws dictating the minimum distance between two cars is to protect drivers should that sudden stop be necessary.

Rear-end collisions often result in:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries

If you’ve suffered these or any other common car accident injuries as a result of a tailgating accident, our accident attorney can help.
