A: Your fault (if any) depends on the particular facts and circumstances. If you were stopped or driving at a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you, there would not appear to be fault assessed against you. The driver behind you may claim that you stopped short or abruptly. You should consult with a local personal injury attorney about your respective rights and appropriate courses of action. Good luck.
