Based on this news report, there is viable evidence that one of the motorists was under the influence and will, therefore, be held solely responsible for the injuries suffered by two victims in the other vehicle. While police have confirmed that the suspect, Carlos Ortiz, was under the influence, there are still several unanswered questions here which include whether or not excessive speed or distracted driving played a role? We trust officials are looking into these and other factors in order to determine precisely what occurred here and why.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, all injured persons involved in this collision and not held responsible will be entitled to a personal injury lawsuit respectively against the liable motorist. Victims involved in these accidents may seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, lost future income, and pain and suffering.
