In this incident, it is evident that Mr. Carlos Palacios will be held fully responsible for causing the collision that injured the police officer involved. The suspect is accused of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs which has corresponding criminal penalties as it is considered as a serious wrongdoing throughout the state.

Aside from DUI, Mr. Palacios also fled the scene after causing the accident. These two factors leave the police officer a right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault individual.

The claim will include a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs and lost wages.
