REAR-END ACCIDENTS: THE PRESUMPTION OF NEGLIGENCE

Whether you have been injured in a rear-end car accident in Fort Walton Beach, Niceville, Destin, Crestview, or any other city in Okaloosa County or the State of Florida, there is a rebuttable presumption that the negligence of the rear-driver was the sole cause of the accident. This is not an absolute holding. Florida law presumes that the rear-driver was negligent unless that driver provides a substantial and reasonable explanation as to why he/she was not negligent. Don't be surprised if the insurance adjuster representing the rear-driver accuses you of suddenly stopping without warning. The insurance company will attempt to use the sudden stop reasoning as a defense to the presumed negligence of its insured. Don't take any chances, if you have been involved in a rear-end accident contact attorneys Dennis and Paul Brannon in Fort Walton Beach, Florida to discuss your claim for personal injuries.
