Innocent victims, or the surviving loved ones, of any auto accident have the right to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for damages incurred. But, in a street racing accident like this, who is at fault? When faced with complex accident claims and liability issues, it is important to hire an experienced attorney who will be able to advise the families of these victims regarding their legal rights and options. If a lawsuit is filed and the plaintiffs need financial assistance, they may want to consider auto accident litigation funding.
