Can I be found liable in Florida if my car was rear-ended in a crash?

“There’s a presumption that the rear end driver is at fault, but in certain exceptions, such as a sudden stop defense, where you stop for no unexplainable reasons, you might be found liable. But that’s always a factual basis, determined on each and every accident. You may have suddenly stopped for the car ahead of you, so most likely the rear end driver’s at fault, but there’s always exceptions.”
