In our previous post, we began looking at the issue of civil liability as it might apply to car accidents in which the party that caused the accidents acted intentionally. As we noted, car accidents are more often than not a matter of negligence, but what about cases where it is more than negligence?
Such cases are admittedly rarer than cases involving negligence, but they do occur. Intentional car accidents have been known to occur, for example, in connection with auto insurance fraud schemes. Certainly, cases of road rage can sometimes lead to intentional crashes. Whatever the specific circumstances might be, intentional car crashes raise unique issues.
