Vehicle Stalled Causing a Car Accident. Who is at Fault?
When your vehicle stalled causing a car accident, is it your fault? The answer to this question depends on the situation. Let’s say your car stalls in the driving lane and you get rear ended. Typically, the driver who hit you would be at fault for not leaving enough driving distance. However, the driver of the stalled vehicle may be found partially at fault for creating a road hazard. As a good rule of thumb, always keep a safe distance between you and the car in front of you and be aware always. By traveling at a speed that will allow you to brake suddenly and have time to stop, you can stay safe. Anything can happen in a matter of seconds. The best way to avoid a car accident is to stay alert and react properly.
