It is necessary that motorists practice precautionary measures and follow traffic regulations while traversing the major roads and intersections. Factors such as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, speeding, distracted driving or negligence often play a role in the occurrence of traffic incidents.
In this specific case, authorities are still gathering more information to determine what actually led to the crash. If the investigation process proves that a motorist has been negligent and caused the traffic collision, then the victim(s) may have the right to a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault. Car crash victims may seek recompense for damages sustained in the accident such as hospital bills, and pain and suffering.
