Florida Rear End Collision Presumption Law:
Although in rear end collisions there is a presumption of negligence on the part of the driver of the rear vehicle which ca only be rebutted by a showing of negligence on the part of the vehicle in the front. Birge v. Charron, 107 So. 3d 350, 362 (Fla. 2012), articulated the position that explaining that if “evidence is produced from which a jury could conclude that the front driver was negligent, the presumption is rebutted and submitted to the jury. Examples would be that the driver of the first vehicle “stopped suddenly” or that they reversed into the rear driver.
