Investigations into crashes like this one are necessary in order to figure out who is responsible for the injuries and damages sustained in the accident. Whoever is determined to have been operating their vehicle in a negligent manner (if anyone) will most likely be held accountable for any damages. Investigators will be looking at factors such as excessive speed, intoxication, and distracted driving to determine if there was a negligent driver at fault here.
If the investigation shows that someone was negligent in their operation of a motor vehicle and that negligence caused the crash, there will likely be grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. Large hospital bills, future medical expenses, lost wages, and property damage are all generally deciding factors for victims. Many victims will often move forward with a claim for compensation because of the aforementioned expenses. Nevertheless, it is always up to the victim to decide if they wish to pursue an avenue for financial compensation. In any event, we have made it our duty to hold negligent drivers accountable.
