Who is at fault in a rear-end car wreck in Vermont? Most of the time it’s the driver in the rear who smashes into the vehicle in front but not always. It’s a good idea to check in with an experienced personal injury car accident lawyer. Please call David Polow at 802-888-7707 for a free consultation. We have had an office on Main Street in Hyde Park, Vermont for almost forty years.

For example in this recent case noted below the driver running into the vehicle in front of her is probably at fault and her insurance company should take responsibility for the injured person’s damages.
