In this case, several questions need to be resolved in order to determine what exactly caused the crash. Was driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs a factor? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Did the driver of the Nissan involved show recklessness or negligence at some point?
Once the investigation process is over and it proves that a negligent party has neglected the safety of other people on the road, the injured parties and proven not responsible for the tragic crash will be entitled to a personal injury lawsuit. The claim will include a compensation for hospital bills, future medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering.
