Cases like this help to illustrate the concept of “liability” in personal injury cases.
Essentially, “liability” means who is legally at fault for an accident.
Whoever is liable will be responsible for the property damage and any injuries suffered. When one driver is legally stopped at a red-light and that driver is rear-ended by another driver that was not paying attention, who is at fault is usually straight forward.
