Atty Haymond,

I was involved in an accident recently when a car hit me from behind. I had a friend in the car w/me and they were really hurt in the crash. Someone told him that since there was sand on the road that the person that hit me might not be at fault.  Are they right, and if so is my friend going to be suing them or me?
