I think in most states it's the (person who rear-ended you)'s fault ALWAYS. In CT I think he would pay me for all damages

I think this is right... pretty hard to get out of an accident where you were the one to rear end someone.

I'm pretty sure if he admitted that he turned around and wasn't paying attention and ran into you then he will be taking care of the damages.

I don't understand "no fault" states deciding to go that way. Most of the time there is a contributing party to a collision and they should be held responsible. Although we can't force an insurance company to pay for damages, but they usually follow our reports or at least contact us to get the real story instead of the BS lies their clients tell them.

Why are you even allowed to operate a motor vehicle, asking a question like this.....

I hope your health and/or business liability insurance premiums skyrocket, just for the above words...
