California Highway Patrol will carry out a forensic examination of both the SUV and the motorcycle, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine what caused Jason Harman to lose control and crash the motorcycle. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast he was going and if he was riding recklessly, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with the motorcycle. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the bike such as point of impact, final resting position, skid marks, and gouge marks.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, the motorcyclist will be granted the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the SUV driver if the investigation proves that the motorcyclist was not liable. Personal injury victims who are not held at fault have the right to seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, pain and suffering, lost future income and loss future income due to work absence from injury.
