Whenever a police chase results in a serious or fatal car accident in California, issues of liability and negligence can become very complex. There are usually numerous drivers involved in the accident, many witnesses to interview and complicated police records and policies to review.
In an accident like this, there is much to consider. It will be necessary to determine whether the police chases were necessary, authorized and carried out according to policy. The role that both drivers played in the crash will also need to be studied if any of the injured parties chooses to pursue a personal injury claim in the aftermath of this serious car accident.
