A forensic examination of the vehicle involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine what ultimately caused the crash. Authorities will thoroughly look into the speed of the driver, whether or not alcohol or drugs played a role, whether or not there was any mechanical issue with the car, and whether or not one motorist was distracted or reckless at the time. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicle, such as point of impact, final resting position, skid marks, and gouge marks.
Pending the results and findings of the investigation for this incident, the injured and not held responsible for causing the collision will possess the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party.
The claim will include the compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical needs, lost income, property damage and pain and suffering.
