Types of Car Accidents and The Fault Surrounding Them
Head-On Collision Car AccidentWhen a head-on collision occurs, fault can generally be assigned to the driver that entered the oncoming traffic lane. The driver may have swerved, turned wrong on a one-way, or become lost or disoriented.
Rear-Ended Car AccidentWhen a car is rear-ended, the car that was following is generally at fault. The law requires drivers to follow at a safe distance. The often-repeated rule of thumb is the three-second rule. It says that if you pick a point, the driver behind should pass that point three seconds after the first. At this distance, drivers should have enough room to stop or avoid collisions with other vehicles.
T-Bone Car AccidentA T-Bone car accident is when a car hits another head-on from the side. The cars form a T. This type of collision often results from a driver running a red light or stop sign putting them at fault. For all of these types of accidents, there is the possibility that other factors contributed to the collision or detracted from the fault.
Comparative FaultFlorida has a comparative fault system, meaning that fault may be allocated between parties who contribute to an accident. Most of the accidents discussed above, however, would generally have no comparative fault on the part of the driver whose vehicle is hit. The percentage of fault is allocated to each party by the jury or judge after hearing the facts of the case, which includes the type of collision.
