Q: I was recently involved in a rear-end collision, but the person who rear-ended me claims that it was my fault. How does the law determine who is at fault in this type of accident?

A: If you are rear-ended, in legal terms, this means that your vehicle is struck in the rear by another vehicle. Being stopped at a pedestrian cross-walk, at a stop sign or traffic light are all common places for an individual to be rear-ended. Without witnesses to the accident or someone admitting fault, the case automatically becomes an issue of your word against theirs.
