Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “Rear-end accidents are one of the most dangerous kinds of accidents that can happen on our roadways. Often, when a person is rear-ended they are completely taken off-guard and have not had an opportunity to brace for an impact. Because rear-end accidents tend to be the result of distracted driving or following too closely on the part of the driver in the rear, the law presumes that the rear driver in a rear-end accident was at fault for the accident.”
