The liable party seems to be fairly clear at this time, although investigators will certainly be looking into multiple factors such as distracted driving, intoxication, and excessive speed. Depending on the conclusive results of the investigation, there may very well be possible grounds for a personal injury lawsuit available to the detective. While we are continuously proud of our passionate commitment to holding negligent drivers liable for the pain they cause, the decision to file a claim for compensation may only be made by the victim.
