A forensic examination of the big rig bus and Ford Edge involved, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will be made to help investigators determine the liability in the accident. Other potential factors will be looked into as well including whether or not a driver was under the influence at the time of the accident, whether or not a motorist was distracted, operating the vehicle recklessly, or traveling over the speed limit prior to impact. Each of these factors plus several others will be assessed allowing police officials to draw up a final conclusion.
Depending on the results of the investigation, the victim may pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party. Traffic accident victims are entitled to seek recompense for medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
