Many people know that an injured person has the right to bring a lawsuit against a driver who causes a crash. The ability of family members to bring a survival suit against someone who causes the deadly collision through a wrongful death action is also well known. However, fewer people may know about their rights to bring a civil action against another person after an incapacitating collision.
Crashes can leave someone with severe injuries that aren't deadly. In some cases, those injuries could result in permanent incapacitation. Many times, the victims of severe brain and head injuries can become unable to care for themselves or make legal decisions on their own behalf. They could also wind up in a coma.
