I was rear-ended and the other driver claimed I caused the car accident. Could I be at-fault?

“Florida law assumes the rear driver in a rear end accident collision is the at fault party. There are certain circumstances that can shift this assumption to the front driver. The three generally recognized categories are a sudden stop that is unexpected, an illegal stop that is therefore considered an unexpected and sudden stop, and mechanical failure. “
