Is the Florida car accident automatically my fault if I rear-ended another car?

“In Florida, you’re presumed to be negligent as the rear end driver in a rear in accident case. However, there are certain circumstances that may reduce or eliminate your liability in this situation. These are a sudden or unexpected stop, a vehicle that is illegally stopped, therefore suddenly and unexpectedly stopped, and mechanical failure.”
