A forensic examination of the Acura ILX and the Nissan Altima involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will be made to help investigators determine the liability in the accident. Other potential factors will be looked into as well including whether or not a driver was under the influence at the time of the accident, whether or not a motorist was distracted, operating the vehicle recklessly, or traveling over the speed limit prior to impact. Each of these factors plus several others will be assessed allowing police officials to draw up a final conclusion.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing was confirmed to have been a factor, the 56-year-old woman, as well as the three injured passengers, will possess the right to file personal injury lawsuits against the negligent motorist. Personal injury victims not held responsible for any collision have the right to seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, pain and suffering, and lost future income due to absence from work.
