Orange County Wrongful Death and Personal Injury Lawyer
A forensic examination of the Porsche and the Mustang, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which party ultimately caused the accident. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs played a role, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either vehicle, and whether or not one of the drivers involved was distracted or simply did not yield to the right of way motorist. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the cars such as point of impact, their final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, the surviving family of Mr. Andres Batta may have the right to pursue a wrongful death claim pending the results of the investigation. Meanwhile, the injured and not found responsible for the collision may be granted the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party.
Victims have the right to seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, funeral costs, pain and suffering, and lost future income, and loss of love and companionship.
