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 is over and it proves that a negligent party has disregarded the safety of other people on the road, the injured and held not responsible for the collision may have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit seeking compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost income, and pain and suffering.
