HOUSTON, June 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Reports of the recent death of a teen who died after being shot in a car brings many legal questions to light. The teen, who was not identified in early reports, was struck by gunfire and then taken to an area hospital, but his injuries proved fatal. Occurrences such as this are not as common as car accidents caused by other means, but these unfortunate events do happen. The circumstances of this case are still being investigated; however, the incident raises questions for many about who is liable for one's injuries in cases like these, or if a car accident was caused by violent misconduct.
