Hit in the Rear

Almost every time there is a law suit filed in a car accident in which one car hits another car in the rear, the “defendant” which is the car in the rear, claims that the car in front allegedly suddenly “stopped short” so that the accident is that driver’s fault.

The Courts have begun to realize that this is a frivolous, if not a false claim.

As reported in the New York Law Journal on October 18, 2018 the firm of Jaroslawicz and Jaros was successful in defeating the defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment seeking the dismissal of plaintiff’s law suit for injuries she suffered in the car accident by having the Honorable Justice Adam Silvera agree with their argument that defendant’s claim that plaintiff suddenly “stopped short” was not a sufficient defense.
