Authorities have numerous ways to determine the cause of an accident as investigators will also be determining the condition of the driver prior to the crash. The investigation will analyze whether or not factors such as speeding, intoxication, and distracted driving played a part. Once the suspect is located and the investigation is complete, there may be grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. However, the decision to file a claim for financial recompense is a personal one that can only be made at the sole discretion of the victim.
