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? Why did the driver of the Toyota Tacoma drift into the opposite lane? Was that motorist reckless or negligent at some point?
Pending the results and findings of the investigation, those who were hurt may have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. The claim will include compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost income, property damage and pain and suffering.
