Who is at Fault if a Police Officer is Killed in a Car Chase?
It may be alleged that it was a violation of established procedure for a police officer to dangerously pursue at high speeds a suspect who allegedly was guilty of nothing more than a minor traffic offense. In a chase fatality, it may be claimed that the risk of danger to the motoring public was too great to justify the deadly high speed pursuit of the driver for a mere traffic violation. The answer will depend on all the facts and circumstances involved. We suggest you consult a local attorney who can review all the documents and evidence in the case.
