His fault. 99.99% of rear enders are going to be the guy at the backs fault. Give icbc a call and get your car fixed. Good luck!

you should have no worries. did the pedestrian stop and give you contact info? that would make your case air tight and rock solid

I've had the same thing happened to me. I was on stevenson hwy in richmond and i had come to stop to let some kids cross at a cross walk. the driver behind didnt realize i had stopped and he slammed into pushing me through the crosswalk. thank god the kids had already passed my car. could you have imagined if they were in front of my car when the old man hit me from behind. icbc deemed him at fault.

Rear ending is almost always the guy behind you's fault, that's why you always are supposed to leave enough room between you and the guy in front of you to be able to stop if he stops quickly. You're good.

My wife went through this a couple of years ago when she was pregnant. She's still dealing with ICBC, haven't settled the injury claim yet.

If you're hurt, even a little bit - get a lawyer NOW. Don't wait like we did. ICBC will screw you any way they can.

did u take pictures? like others said, is his fault. but i've dealt with a past taxi driver incident where they try to BS there way with ICBC to drag on the case.

like Jlenko said, if u start feeling neck pain, back pain or the taxi driver is making it a hassle on this simple claim, get a lawyer

I just have a question on whether or not it was a designated pedestrian crosswalk or you just felt like being nice and stopped because you saw somebody trying to J walk? If it's the ladder I would urge you not to do it again. Yes, I know being a good person is great and yes regardless the car behind you should always be far enough and pay attention that they can stop safely. However, it's often people who do something with the best intent that causes consequences they never thought of. Stopping when you aren't supposed to can be quite dangerous on the road. Just my 2 cents at least.

Actually, if a pedestrian is J-walking, don't you, as a driver still have an obligation to do your best to prevent that accident? The onus is on you not to run over the pedestrian.

The onus is on the idiot tail-gating driver to pay attention to what's in front and to leave enough room for any sudden stops.

At least that's how I've understood things.

Yes but I'm not talking about stopping for a j walker who has already begun to cross. I'm talking about a J walker who is standing on the curb waiting until it's clear to go. The situation you are referring to the driver doesn't really have a choice b/c the j walker forces you into stopping but what i'm talking about is the driver making a choice that nobody expects and stopping for somebody to allow them to cross. Huge difference.

his job is to leave a 2 second following distance, so he can stop his un educated cab.

That is correct. I have actually received this ticket "failed to prevent accident" cause the officer felt sorry for me and knocked it down from an illegal left turn.
