Can You Pursue A Lawsuit Against A Driver Who Isn’t Drunk?
If you were injured in a car crash that wasn’t a DUI, you might be wondering whether it’s still possible for you to file a personal injury claim against the driver. First of all, you should know that as long as you can argue that the driver was negligent, you can still file a lawsuit against them. Negligent driving behaviors can come in many forms. Some of them are speeding, not abiding by traffic lights, and not paying attention to crossing pedestrians. Thus, if you feel that your driver is guilty of any of the above, you should consider finding a legal representative to help your case.
