If you or someone you love has been injured in a rear-end collision, Zanes Law will go after the at-fault driver and their insurance company and help you recover compensation. A rear-end collision is almost always the fault of the back driver, who is expected to keep a sufficient following distance to be able to brake in time even in the event of a sudden stop by the vehicle in front. The Arizona Department of Transportation states that drivers have a “responsibility to pay full attention” when driving. We can help figure out if the person who hit you ignored that responsibility.

At Zanes Law, we have helped dozens of Tucson-area drivers recover the compensation they deserve after being rear-ended. We want to put our experiences and resources to work for you. Our Tucson personal injury attorneys offer a free, no-obligation case evaluation, and we conduct it when and where it is convenient for you. That’s right: our attorneys travel to you to make your life easier and allow you to focus on recovering.

To learn more about what a rear-end collisions lawyer in Tucson, AZ from Zanes Law can do for you, call us today at (866) 499-8989.

Who Is at Fault for a Rear-End Collision in Tucson, Arizona

Perhaps you have heard that old saying that the back driver is always at fault for a rear-end collision. Indeed, the adage is true most of the time, as the driver in back has a duty to keep a safe following distance at all times. What is a safe following distance? The Arizona Department of Transportation recommends a three-to-six second cushion. Ultimately, the back driver must be able to react in time to stop without hitting the vehicle in front of them.

As a result, the back driver is the primary at-fault party for most, but not all, rear-end collisions. Lest you believe you have a slam-dunk claim against the driver who rear-ended you, there are several rebuttals they might use to escape responsibility. These include instances where the front driver:

Stops Abruptly for No Good Reason

Sometimes the back driver can avoid liability for a rear-end collision by claiming that the front driver, in a moment of road rage, locked up their brakes for no good reason. A rear-end collisions lawyer in Tucson, AZ can defend you against such a claim and make sure you get paid the money you deserve.

Cuts a Driver Off Before Braking

Another instance in which the back driver is not responsible for a rear-end collision is when the front driver cuts in front of him and then immediately slams on the brakes. Zanes Law can help you refute this allegation from the other driver.

Has Nonfunctioning Taillights or Brake Lights

The driver might claim that your taillights or brake lights were out of order, preventing them from seeing you in time to stop. This is another claim against which an attorney from Zanes Law can defend you.

Do not allow the driver who rear-ended you to avoid liability. Make sure you have a rear-end collision lawyer from Zanes Law on your side before filing a claim. We will gather evidence and build a compelling claim on your behalf, overcoming any efforts by the other driver not to pay what they rightfully owe you.
