“Chain Reaction” Rear-End Collisions
Rear-end collisions usually occur at intersections or in heavy traffic. With all of the traffic in Tampa, you can imagine that this scenario of a rear-end collision occurs frequently. And, of course, you can imagine somebody could get injured from a rear-end collision. It is even worse when there is a domino effect; a chain reaction where multiple vehicles are involved in a rear-end collision. Basically, Car B slams into the back of the Car A in front of them. Car B’s sudden stopping without slowing down or brake lights causes Car C to slam into the behind of Car B. This forms a chain reaction or multi-car accident.
Applying the same rear-end collision liability guidelines previously mentioned in our blog article like these makes it easy to spot the party at fault. Once again, the at fault party is almost always the driver in the rear of the accident that started it all.
For example, if Driver C rear-ends Driver B who is stopped at a red light behind Driver A—the force of the initial crash may propel Driver B’s vehicle into Driver A. In this case, both Driver A and B would seek to recover from Driver C.
In very rare cases, Driver B might cut off Driver C and create an initial rear-end accident. Driver B may then get forced into Driver A and rear-end him. In this scenario, Driver A and C would have Driver B to blame. However, not every case is this clear and the parties (Driver B and C) may share liability or responsibility for this accident. You can also imagine how many times this happens in Tampa Bay traffic with the constant gridlock on I-275, Dale Mabry Hwy., Hillsborough Ave., Waters Avenue, or the Veterans Expressway. Drivers constantly cutting off each other and then rear-ending each other.
