All drivers must exercise due care in order to avoid collisions. If a driver fails to slow down and causes a fatal collision, this could form the basis of a negligence claim. Sadly, drivers will often do everything that they can to deny liability after any collision. This is why it is so important to seek legal counsel early on.
