Are there any instances where you would be considered the cause of an accident where you have been hit from the rear?
Scenario: You are turning left on a country road. You do not indicate left and do not slow down before making the turn. Another vehicle decides to overtake you and when that vehicle is right next to you, you brake hard and turn to the left, which results in a collision.
This makes you the most at fault in causing the accident. You did not use your blinkers and were not attentive to the situation before making the turn. The other driver did not do anything really wrong.
The turning car, A, is hit, but it was A that caused the collision by suddenly switching directions. The overtaking car stays on course.
