While many road incidents are just accidents, investigators are always expected to scour crash sites to determine if negligence could be involved. The discovery of this factor will allow both the state and aggrieved parties to explore and pursue various legal avenues/claims against these suspects. With that in mind, victims of these unfortunate events are advised to seek legal help so that their options can be discussed properly.
