A forensic examination of both of the two vehicles, 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.
In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, immediate family members of those fatally injured, as well as those hurt, may be granted the right to file a wrongful death and or personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party pending the investigation results. Victims would then have the right to seek compensation for damages including medical expenses and hospital bills, funeral costs, pain and suffering, lost wages, and loss of love and companionship.
