It appears that the driver of the Mazda will be held responsible for causing the collision that led to the injuries of the innocent parties involved. That motorist is accused of failing to yield to a stop sign and causing the crash.
In such cases where negligence is apparently a factor, the injured and not held responsible for causing the collision will possess the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. The claim will include the compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost income, property damage and pain and suffering.
