Hialeah Rear-End Shunt Accidents

Most rear end shunt accidents in Hialeah and Florida are quite straightforward. A car slams into the rear end of another vehicle, such as a car or motorcycle, and the force of the impact can push the impacted vehicle forward. Usually, the driver who has hit the car in front of them is considered liable because they did not stop in time or because they failed to follow at a safe distance.

Securing documentation after rear end shunt accident is very important. The at-fault driver in these types of cases will sometimes try to deflect responsibility, claiming that the driver who has been injured braked too suddenly or made another error that led to the collision. In many rear-end shunt accidents, however, it is possible to get fair compensation if you have been injured -- either through an insurance claim or a legal process.
