In most cases the driver of the vehicle that hits a vehicle ahead of them is at fault. Obviously there are exceptions such as when a driver slams on the brakes for no legitimate reason and causes the driver behind them to run into them. There are other circumstances that may also mitigate or limit liability for a rear end accident, such as when there are three cars in a row, and the third car strikes the second car, pushing it into the first car. In this case, the first driver is most likely at fault and the middle car is not at fault even though they rear ended the third vehicle.
