A forensic examination, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators ultimately determine what happened. Authorities will thoroughly look into how fast all involved motorists were going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, and whether or not there were any mechanical issues with the vehicles involved. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left 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, surviving family members of a victim who has died, as well as those who are injured, may be entitled to wrongful death and personal injury claims pending the investigation results. Wrongful death and personal injury victims may seek monetary recompense for damages which include hospital bills, medical expenses, funeral costs, pain and suffering, and loss of companionship.
