In this incident, it is apparent that the driver of the Mercedes will be held fully responsible for causing the collision that injured the motorcyclist involved. The suspect is accused of driving under the influence of alcohol which has corresponding criminal penalties as it is considered as a serious wrongdoing throughout the state.
Aside from DUI, the motorist also fled the scene after causing the accident. These two factors leave the injured victim 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.
