I am sorry to hear that you are concerned but even if he hit you he was the one at fault.

It would mean that he was driving too closely. Anytime you hit from behind the other person is deemed to be at fault.

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
