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 process is over and it concludes that a motorist has been negligent and caused the injuries of another person, the injured and held not responsible for the collision will likely have a right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault person.
The claim will include a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
