When these devastating events occur, family and friends are left with a multitude of questions, perhaps the most common of which is: what happened and why? Although car accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, there are cases in which negligence contributes to the accident, whether that negligence involves the behavior of another driver, a vehicle manufacturer, or even a government agency tasked with maintaining safe road conditions.
Law enforcement officials have launched an investigation into the recent Bucks County crash to determine the cause and further, if one of the drivers involved was at fault. If negligence is suspected, the surviving family may have grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit. These cases can be highly nuanced, requiring a great deal of evidence in order to be effectively proven in a court of law.
