A forensic examination of the Jeep and the Scion, 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 the speed of each driver, whether or not alcohol or drugs played a role, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with the cars, 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 vehicles such as point of impact, their final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.
Pending the results and findings of the investigation for this accident, the surviving family of the deceased may be granted the right to pursue a wrongful death claim. 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 are entitled 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.
