If you rear-end a vehicle you are most likely at fault for the accident in Maryland and Washington D.C. You will need a miracle to get out of this liability and I have heard of a few miracles. A lawyer for the insurance company once argued to a jury that the driver who hit the vehicle from behind was not at fault due to a phantom vehicle, and the jury bought the argument.
Driving Tips: Keep a safe distance between you and the car in front of you, about two car lengths. There are many justifiable reasons why a vehicle may suddenly stop. If you are too close and speeding, you will hit them.
