Personal Injury Lawyer
Motorists in general are obliged to practice road safety precautions and follow traffic laws to avoid auto accidents. In this case, there are several questions that need to be resolved in order to determine the liability in the crash. Was the driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs a factor? Did excessive speed or distracted driving play a role? Who had the right of way? Did any of the drivers involved show recklessness or negligence at some point?
Once the investigation is over and it proves that a negligent party has disregarded the safety of others and has led to the injuries of other individuals, the victims may have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit seeking compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering.
