Car accidents can sometimes present complex questions related to their case. Initially, officers will attempt to rule out driver-related issues, such as drug or alcohol impairment, distraction, and drowsiness. Other times, the crash results from a violation of traffic laws, such as failure to yield or failing to keep a proper lookout. Any innocent victims who are injured due to the negligence of another driver may bring a claim for personal injury against the responsible driver.
