The person at legal fault in a car wreck is responsible to society for breaking a law intended to keep us safe. That is why the VSP writes a ticket after a wreck. That person is also responsible for the damages caused by any negligent behavior that causes injury. Such damages could include medical expenses, lost wages or earning capacity, physical pain, mental anguish, and inconvenience, to name a few.
