A forensic examination of the truck, as well as photos that were taken of the scene, will help investigators determine the liability in the crash. Authorities will thoroughly look into how the driver was going, whether or not alcohol or drugs played a role, whether or not there was any mechanical issue with the vehicle, and whether or not the motorist involved was distracted or reckless at the time. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the car as point of impact, its final resting position, skid marks, and gouge marks.

Pending the result and findings of the investigation, the male pedestrian may have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit, seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
