My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.
The police do not have to be called unless a person is injured or a car has to be towed away.
The law says if you collide with a vehicle by hitting them from behind you are liable.
If you deny this he will have to sue you and the court will deal with it. It is your word against the other drivers.
But generally I would say form your question you are liable.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.
