Drunk driver caused an accident - Am I at fault

Q: A drunk driver in front of me caused an accident to the car in front of him, I then rear ended him, why am I getting blamed?

A: Even though the driver who caused the accident was intoxicated, you still have to maintain a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. Liability is typically pretty clearly your fault when you rear end the vehicle in front of you. Sorry to hear about your situation. Drunk drivers make the roads a danger to us all.
