Liability In Police Chase Accidents
Police in California tend to have a great deal of immunity in the event of accidents. Police officials are supposed to use their lights and sirens in order to warn other drives about their presence. If a police officer does not use their lights and sirens to warn other drivers they could be found liable in the event of an accident. Any person that is injured in a police car accident may have legal recourse through a bodily injury claim.
