I Was Sitting at a Stop Light in Ocala and Was Rear-ended by Another Car. Is the Driver That Hit Me Responsible for My Damages?
Probably yes, because in Florida there is a presumption that a driver who rear-ended another vehicle was the sole cause of the crash.
This means, if it is shown that the accident was due solely to the other driver’s negligence when he rear-ending you (and you were simply waiting at a stop light and did not contribute to the accident in any way), then the other driver is responsible for 100% of your damages.
