Can I be found liable in Florida if my car was rear-ended in a crash?
Yes, you can. The presumption in Florida for a rear end collision is that the person that is in the back of the collision is the one that is responsible. However, if you have made a sudden stop without a justified reason, then you could be held responsible. Say a car in front of you stops quick and you are able to have the reflexes and time enough to stop, but the car behind you does not, you would not be responsible for that. However, if you just slam on your brakes for no reason and the car behind you hits you, then you could be responsible.
