Studies show that criminals outrun the police in police chases about 17.9 percent of the time. Usually, drivers who commit crimes, such as robbing a bank, stealing a vehicle, or committing a murder, try to escape the police. Drivers who are under the influence usually drive at high speeds due to their inability to discern how fast they’re going.
It’s unfortunate that a woman was injured in her own home due to the negligent behavior of another driver. The woman could work with an attorney to file a personal injury lawsuit to help cover medical expenses, property damage, and more.
