A forensic examination of the vehicles involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine which driver ultimately caused the accident. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast each driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, and whether or not there were any mechanical issues with the vehicles. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the vehicles such as point of impact, final resting positions of each vehicle, skid marks, and gouge marks.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, family members of wrongful death victims, as well as those injured and not found liable, are entitled to a wrongful death or personal injury lawsuit claim against a negligent party. Victims may seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, funeral costs, loss of companionship, and pain and suffering.
