A forensic examination of both the motorcycle and the vehicle, 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 played a role, whether or not there were any mechanical issues with either the bike or the car, and whether or not one of the drivers involved was distracted or did not yield to the right of way motorist. The investigation will also consist of looking at measurements of evidence left by the motorcycle or the vehicle such as point of impact, their final resting positions, skid marks, and gouge marks.
A victim of a traffic collision has the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent individual, seeking a compensation for all the hospital bills, future medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
