When there's been a rear-end accident, the driver of the vehicle in back is generally considered to be at fault. Recovering financial compensation for the injuries that you suffered can be complicated, however. The other driver may deny responsibility and try to blame you for causing the crash. For example, the driver may claim that you suddenly slammed on your brakes.
Don't expect much help from the insurance companies. They're supposed to help after you've been injured in an accident but their main goal is to protect their bottom line.
