Can You Still Pursue A Lawsuit Against At-Fault Driver Who Wasn’t Arrested?

Just because a traffic accident happened, doesn’t mean that a driver who was responsible for inciting it would get arrested. In fact, in certain car accidents, the police might not even show up! So, it is up to you to take the necessary actions to ensure that your rights are upheld. You can do this by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver if you sustained wounds from the accident.
