I have a question. I have always heard and assumed to be true,that if you or someone else hit you or someone else in the rear of your car that you are at fault. In other words if a person hits someone in the rear it is automatically said that the car that hit the rear is at fault because it is assumed they were traveling to close or to fast to avoid a collision.Is that true?

Pretty much, unless guy in front backed into guy behind...really when you think about it what could guy in front have done? i'd say 99.99999% of the time the "rearendor" is at fault and the ''rearendee'' is free from any negligence.

That makes sense ,but a person could be backing up and hit someone it has happened before. I was sitting still in a parking lot between rows of parked cars and someone backed out and hit me .
