There are two important parts to any car accident and personal injury law case. One is liability, which is concerned with the party and/or parties at fault / liable for the accident, and the other is damages, which refers to the amount of money which a Plaintiff may be awarded for injuries in a lawsuit. Generally speaking, the greater the injuries, the higher the damages.
With respect to liability and rear-end collisions in New York, generally the driver who rear ended another is the negligent party / party at fault. However, under certain circumstances, partial liability / fault may be attributed to the driver that was rear ended if that driver's brake lights were broken, experiencing road rage and slamming on his/her brakes without a legitimate reason, unsafe merging and/or unsafe reversing.
