If four cars all hit each other because the end car did not stop who is at fault?

Pretty much any time you hit somebody from behind you are at fault, even if someone 'pushed' you into them. It means you didn't stop a safe distance behind the person in front of you. So the only person that isn't at fault is the person at the front of the line. It may be that the ones in the middle are held jointly responsible with the guy that ran into the line at the back end. There is no such thing as 'stopped a safe distance behind'. It depends on who hit who first. You are not at fault if your car is pushed into the vehicle ahead of you. If car 1 stops and is hit by car 2 and then cars 3 and 4 pile on, 2, 3, and 4 are responsible for their front end damage and the rear damage to the car ahead of them. If 1, 2, and 3 are all stopped at the light and the fourth car pushes them all together, that driver is responsible for ALL the damage.

Yesterday you got into you 3 car accident the driver agead of us stopped immediately making us rear end which you found out was your fault but the pep behind us hit us had jus got a 2010 mitshubsi?

Your right, you are responsible to leave enough distance between you and the vehicle in front of you in order for you to be able to stop. Good measure is one car length for every 10 mph that you are traveling. This also applies to the person behind you. Technically you are responsible for the damage to the front vehicle and the front end damage to your vehicle, and the person behind you is responsible for the damage to your rear end and his damage. Submit your claim quickly to your company and the company of the person behind you and get them a copy of the accident report. Let the insurance companies determine who pays what. Most likely your is totaled as you have front and rear damage if it is extensive. If minor it may not be totaled. Go ahead and look around for the value of vehicles similar to yours in model, condition, mileage, etc so you know the ballpark before an offer is made to you.
