Two-Vehicle Accidents in Bakersfield
At this time, many issues surrounding the two-vehicle accident on Airport Drive and Roberts Lane remain unresolved. As part of the ongoing investigation, officials will consider if either driver had consumed drugs or alcohol prior to operating their vehicles or if they had simply failed to comply with basic traffic laws. Furthermore, forensic teams will analyze photos of the crash site and inspect the SUV and car for mechanical issues or system failure. By taking these factors into account, law enforcement officials can determine liability.
If authorities determine one driver negligently operated a vehicle, the non-guilty victims can pursue a personal injury lawsuit and, ultimately, receive compensation for medical bills, vehicle insurance, painful injuries, and additional inconveniences.
