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

In Florida there is a rebuttable presumption that if you’re rear ended, the vehicle behind you is at fault however that presumption can be overcome one of three ways. One, the rear driver can show that they had a mechanical failure in their vehicle, two there can be testimony that the front vehicle made a sudden or unexpected stop or three, evidence that the front vehicle was illegally stopped in the roadway.
