Amber is heaven sent!! Amber and her team worked very hard on my case!! They checked on me while I had my weekly doctor visits. They were very detailed with my settlement. I didn’t have to second guess anything. I would recommend her to anybody who is in a car accident !! I’ve even referred my love ones who also needed her to represent them in an accident. She made my process as painless as possible. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!

I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

Atlanta Rear-End Collision Lawyer Explains Fault After an Accident

Contrary to popular belief, the driver of the rear vehicle in a rear-end collision is not always at fault for the accident. Liability in a rear-end collision is not automatic, and under certain circumstances, the lead driver or some other vehicle may be liable for the injured drivers’ damages.

The lead driver may be at fault in a rear-end accident if the lead driver was negligent or driving recklessly. This is often the case when the lead driver is:

  • Reversing into the rear car,
  • Driving while impaired,
  • Intentionally trying to cause an accident, or
  • Driving with broken brake lights.

Let an Atlanta rear-end accident lawyer at Gilormo Injury Law help you determine which driver or drivers are at fault in a rear-end collision.

Avoiding Rear-End Accidents in Georgia

There are ways to help avoid being involved in a rear-end accident, including:

  • Don’t Tailgate. The three-second rule will help you determine if you’re following too closely. Don’t let other drivers goad you into following too closely by cutting in front of you.
  • Beware of Other Tailgaters. If another driver appears to be set on driving too closely behind you, pull over or aside and let them pass.
  • Scan Your Surroundings. Visually scan what’s happening all around your vehicle constantly, and check your various mirrors for potential hazards.
  • Look Well Ahead of Your Vehicle. Along with looking at the vehicle directly in front of you, also look at the vehicles two or three vehicles ahead. Looking ahead allows you to apply your brakes well in advance of any potential hazard.
  • Slow Down. The faster you drive, the longer it takes for you to stop.
  • Use Hazard Lights or Blinkers. Use your hazards to alert other drivers of, for example, cars stopped alongside the road or highway construction.
  • Make Sure Your Tail-lights Work. Ensure your rear tail-lights are visible, clean, unobstructed, and operating properly.
