27 May Man Who Caused Train Crash Could Face Personal Injury Lawsuits
A 38-year-old man who is alleged to be responsible for causing a car accident involving a light train car could face several personal injury lawsuits from individuals seriously injured in the accident. The man was allegedly intoxicated at the time of the accident, which occurred on May 11, and then fled the scene of the crime. While an Arizona State University police officer subsequently caught up to and arrested the man, law enforcement officials have not stated what the man’s alleged blood alcohol content was at the time of the serious car accident.
Currently, the man is facing charges of DUI and fleeing the scene of the accident, though additional charges may be filed as investigators continue looking into the case.
The evidence gathered in and the outcome of the criminal case against the man will be extremely helpful to the accident victims, should they choose to file a personal injury lawsuit against the man. This is because criminal cases can establish criminal negligence that would bolster the plaintiff’s case in a civil lawsuit.
By filing an accident lawsuit, injured parties can obtain compensation for their injuries, losses, lost wages and mental anguish caused by the accident.
