A forensic examination of the motorcycle and all the other vehicles involved, 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 how fast each driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs were involved, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either vehicle. 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.
If authorities finally prove that negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor in this accident, family members of the deceased may be entitled to a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault party.
